Kingerlee's Glass Half Full

Kingerlee are installing double glazed heat soaked panels into their £35m St John's College project in Oxford's city centre as they near completion of the buildings external envelope.

The largest of the 45mm thick glazed units were sized at 6.00m x 3.00m and weighed in at just less than 1 tonne per unit. Kingerlee's sub-contractor Solaglas installed the units with the assistance of one of the site's luffing jib tower cranes and a Glass Boy vacuum lifting set. The panels were carefully inserted between architectural pre-cast concrete panels to form the main entrance of the new Kendrew Quadrangle Building.

The project is due for completion next summer.
