Visually Stunning Façade at Queen Mary's

15 Jun 2015
Case study


The Mathematics Research Centre and Astronomy Unit at Queen Mary University of London is one of the largest mathematical science departments in the UK, drawing academic visitors from all over the world. Its redevelopment encompassed a visually stunning façade designed and manufactured by Aliva and installed by Blink Glass.

Blink Glass’ extensive experience in technical and creative glass meant they were a natural partner for Aliva to install this glass façade which was developed using the Ali Glass Tardis system. It also incorporated a bespoke curtain walling system.

The plinth section was completed using the Ali HPLS high pressure laminate system and the areas around the foyer were given a  white rendered finish. “ Our extensive experience meant we were able to easily handle the technical and logistical challenges faced on this project to ensure the installation went smoothly and to the time scale set,” said. Rod Milicevic, Head of Creative Solutions – BLINK.
