Highlights
122 Leadenhall - 'The Cheesegrater'

The 75,000 square metres façade features a curtain wall that is double glazed to allow for a high solar protection on neutral-looking glass.

Fruit and Wool Exchange

The new-build façades are predominately brick-faced, with punched windows to reflect the surrounding context.

Caudwell International

Curved glass, punch windows and precast stone panels make up the envelope on a figure-of-eight footprint.

All our projects

From landmark construction projects to innovative residential builds, this is how our glass can make the difference.
