The building consists of a showroom, offices and factory for the processing of glass and manufacture of glass products.
This development is centred around Metro Performance Glass, one of New Zealand’s largest suppliers of glass and glass products.
It combines a 10,000m² factory, complete with four gantry cranes, two level office and amenities areas, and a strong visual showroom to showcase the company's glass products to clients, and effectively demonstrates what can be achieved with glass construction.
Good natural lighting to the factory was achieved with roof lights and a glazed band to the walls.
The Engenium team was engaged as Lead Consultant including Structural and Civil Engineering.
