Phase 1 of the V&A Caltex project entailed Metal Windows, repurposing of a 40m-long leaking sky light. The solution that we effected completely removed the glass from the existing skylight frame. We rebuilt and modified frame and added new glazing to create a new “glass skin”. In this way not only was the problem of the leak resolved, but the aesthetic appearance of the roof was (cost-effectively) improved.
Phase 2 of Metal Windows involvement included the reworking of an old failed curtain wall system. This was done with aluminum and glass framing.The end result is the iconic home to both Caltex SA and Vespa Motorcycles, at the V&A
Waterfront’s Northern entrance.
