ESG glass products have proved a winning combination at Wembley 04, part of the much publicised new Wembley City development, constructed by main contractor Sisk for Quintain Investments. A total number of 1307 ESG glass panels have been used at Wembley 04, representing almost 2000sq m of highly technical glass. Glazing experts Hubbards selected ESG’s 10mm clear toughened glass; 13.5mm toughened laminated diffuser glass; and 13.5mm coloured toughened laminated glass in a variety of applications, including balconies, balustrades and privacy screening; and to provide decorative elements in the prestigious residential complex.
Following their successful collaboration on the now completed Wembley 01, ESG and Hubbards worked exceptionally closely, Hubbards providing a complete project schedule from the outset, allowing ESG to plan ahead and produce all the required panels in the most efficient way possible. ESG delivered every piece of glass to site with a panel reference, location reference and zone reference.
To make life even easier for the fitters, ESG produced every panel with a uniform stamp position so that it was immediately clear which way round the panel should be fitted.
Graeme Brouder, Key Accounts Manager for ESG said: “This close partnership is unusual and was an enormous advantage. Because we were kept fully in the picture at all times, we were able to provide a flawless service to Hubbards, which helped keep the project on track and simplified installation on site. This way of working should definitely be adopted more widely in future.”
