Project Summary

Utilising the GR in–house designed customised roof access decking, our Schuco approved glazing operatives undertook an extensive refurbishment program to the 2No sloped atriums and central valley metal box gutter detail, works also included multiple high level glass replacements.

Glazing Refurbishment were called upon by the end Client as a Schuco approved Company to investigate and propose some fixed cost remedial options to rectify the considerable water ingress being experienced to the areas below the double atrium of the PepsiCo UK Head office.

Project Challenges

The required remedial works were extensive:  All existing facia capping, tapes and gaskets were removed and disposed of.  Internal drainage and mechanically fixed mullion/transom interfaces were exposed  and repaired as required.

New Schuco EPDM gasketry was supplied along with 50mm foil backed tapes.  New Schuco pressure plates were installed to include new painted facia cappings.

The second atrium had further challenges in that extensive areas of Brise Soliel had to be removed pre works and replaced post works.

The central metal box gutter was also an issue and had to be re-lined and the existing associated mullion drainage shoots were extended to ensure all discharged water cleared the base of the structure.

Multiple overhead and high level glass replacements were then undertaken as a separate operation utilising self-erecting craneage and a contract lift.
