The glass balustrade across four floors of attrium and stairwell was badly damaged by cleaning scratches during the final builders clean after the development of this head office building.
Caused by using a scraper incorrectly to remove paint and plaster from the glass, the scratch damage was present on both sides of the glass.
This stairwell has a single piece handrail bonded to the top of the balustrade making replacement of individual units very difficult. The problem was further compounded by the balustrade panels being bonded into a recess at the bottom.
As the building had already been handed over and was occupied, our members had to work out of hours to complete the works.
