Glazed Podium - London

Scope Of Work

The challenge of this project was the method to support a large glass wall over the four revolving entrance doors. As the doors were in close proximity to one another, there was no room to accommodate floor mounted supports. The ultimate design developed by JML was to span between the solid building elements with a multi-strand cable anchored at one end with tension kept constant by the use of a counterweight attached to a pulley system concealed in the side wall. The other main feature was a semi-circular lighting box backdrop.
