Major regeneration project
Wrightstyle is supplying advanced glazing systems to a major regeneration project in the heart of old Edinburgh.
The company is supplying EI60 curtainwall screens and doors to its client Abbey Glass UK for the 7.5 acre New Waverley project in the city’s Old Town.
Already partially complete, New Waverley will consist of shops, restaurants, several hotels, 148 apartment and penthouses, and almost 200,000ft2. of Grade A office space.
The seven-level development, which comprises two interlinked office buildings, will soon also be home to 2,900 government workers.
Wrightstyle is supplying SR60 curtain walling and WSL 60-F1 insulated profiles for this creative, cultural and innovation new city district.
“We worked closely with Allan Murray Architects to agree connection details, test certification and options for hardware,” Chris Peters, Wrightstyle’s chief design manager, said.
“The tricky part of the project was balancing sizes the architect required while staying within test data.
“This involved considerable input and review of structural opening sizes to ensure that the doors and screens all met test certification.”
