Wicona  Wictec 50 curtain wall was modified to achieve a glass roof with a pitch of 3 degrees. 

 

The large entrance canopy features toughened and SGP laminated glass, suspended on a steel frame, also by GLF.

 

The Glass Box was constructed using glass fins and beams to support  the glass outer skin, eliminating the requirement for support steelwork.

 

All design and engineering was carried out in-house by GLF Technical Staff.
