Houston Cox’s works consisted of bespoke oak glazed screens and doors, installed into existing railway arches at London Bridge with the spaces under the arches being used as both commercial and retail areas.
All the screens had to be templated and digitally surveyed to overcome the vast differences in the brickwork in each opening. Each glass panel had to be individually glazed onsite once the frames were installed, due to the weight of the complete units. Each door was also fitted with powered access and pedestrian barriers to allow push button entry into each area.
Due to the location and client requirements, the final finished units were also subject to high pressure water testing usually reserved for external wall cladding without openings. This is a very intrusive test and rarely used to test this type of installation and after some design and installation changes to overcome the issues this could cause, all the screens past the pressure test.View all general joinery
