The Mitre 10 new office building in Albany was a very large balustrade project which really tested the efficiency and skills of the Haynes Glass Team. Due to the tight work areas, Proliner Laser measures were not possible, so the guys spent a lot of hours creating templates for the majority of glass panels installed. And judging by the perfection of accuracy after install, they did an extremely good job.
115 panels of 15mm Toughened Glass, 910 holes drilled into concrete, 1190 standoffs and brackets installed, and roughly 1000 hours of manual labour later, the final project was complete. Not to mention the strain at working over Christmas. With a satisfied construction company, architect and most importantly Mitre 10 customer, Haynes Glass could breathe a sigh of relief and look back on a tremendous effort and a finish of class.
With a unique design on the main stairwell, glass panels weighing up to 250kg and as long as 4.5m in length were overlapping other panels with use of extra long standoff spacers to create an dramatic effect. The perseverance from the team to carry such large panels and align the fittings so precisely was a huge achievement and will not be forgotten. In fact, every journey north on the motorway past Albany the balustrade glass can be viewed clearly for anyone to see.
Meredith Connell is a law firm where privacy and sound control is imperative. Our secondary glazed frameless partitions, made up of two different glass thicknesses and a 50mm air space, achieve sound control performance of nearly 50 STC. Over 6 tonnes of glass was transported via crane to the 5th floor of the new NZME building. With 8 frameless glass pivot doors and impressive angle glazed frameless partitions, this fitout demanded a high level of quality attention and excellence.
The Allianz Offices showcased a wide variety of our commercial expertise. The job included frameless glass automatic sliding doors, frameless glass pivot doors, frameless glass partitions and a striking Metallic Blue Colourglass Splashback on cotswald toughened textured glass
The high profile Topshop fitout in the heart of Queen St required painted glass panels so large, it was a big test for the brand new toughening furnace in Auckland, manufacturing glass panels as long as 6m from point to point. Not previously achievable. Covering most walls throughout the 2 level stud ceiling was a huge test for the team, who performed brilliantly in the extremely short lead time.
