Carl and Courtnay’s place has just had it’s Grand Designs moment, with large glazing units flying through the air on a crane!The units were so large that even though it was only 25 metres from the street to their final location, an extensive scaffolding platform and a crane were required to get them close – then it was just a matter of five glaziers lifting them into place.

The slab/glazing detail has come up a treat – we have run the glass down the face of the slab to create a seamless visual transition, making the glazing disappear, while also using the double-glazed unit to insulate the slab edge. Now that the house is closed-up it’s time for the finishing trades.
