Te Awamutu Library was a new build that required 71 metres of floor to ceiling window. We were ultimately able to provide an effective and well-made building façade that met the client’s budget. The northeast and northwest walls of the building are almost entirely constructed from our double glazed window, with sections of it supporting external aluminium fins. The buildings design allowed us to run 52 meters of continuous, raked, flush-glaze window.

David O. McKay Stake and Cultural Events Centre project was a new 4000m² build containing 140 windows and doors.
Some of the standout features were the complex large round window and the frameless glass link between the two main buildings.
“There was a particular window that required some out of the box thinking. We brainstormed, got creative, developed that concept & subsequently manged to engineer a solution”.
The Rotorua Child Health and Library Hub was a renovation and earthquake strengthening project. The client wanted a quality local fabricator that could rapidly adapt to changes that come about from renovating an existing building.
The new additions to the building were the 3 story high stairwell windows, the glazed entrance canopy, and the full top story.
