In order to achieve the necessary steel window modifications and repairs to this building, all the glass which had become broken or brittle with age, needed to be hacked out and replaced with new glazing.
Opening window sections were required to be fixed shut and handles and hardware removed, in order to comply with the air conditioning requirements specified by the site’s mechanical engineers.
Zeeland House and Pier House
A complete façade replacements was done on these two buildings. We used powder coated Aluminium products rated for commercial use and manufactured to withstand harsh Cape winter weather. We removed all of the old windows and replaced them in their entirety with our new Metal Window products. All of this work was done while the building was occupied and functioning with the minimum of disruption. On Zeeland House we employed a technique called “Curtainwalling” wherein the new façade of the building is all Glass and Aluminium.
