Metal Technology System 17 is used for the eight curtain walling screens and rooflight. Windows are fabricated from Metal Technology 4-35 or 5-35 Hi+ Systems. A number of doors are also incorporated into the curtain walling screens, manufactured using Metal Technology System 7-20 5-20D. A bespoke Metal Technology solution, developed for the glass box curtain walling at levels seven to 13, is in line with the architect’s vision.
