Metal Technology Delivers Global Standards for Local HQ
Antrim-based architecture aluminium systems company, Metal Technology became an integral factor in development of the newly constructed Cookstown headquarters for engineering firm, CDE Global.
Contracted by Felix O’Hare, Metal Technology were chosen to deliver its specialist glazing systems for the striking new building. For the impact required for this prestigious HQ, Metal Technology’s System 17 Silicone Pointed Curtain Walling was extensively used as it provided a seamless glass façade. This visually impressive system offers a diverse range of profiles that offers structural integrity, weather performance, thermal enhancement and importantly can only be seen on the inside of the building. Metal Technology’s frameless opening casement windows were also used to provide continuity in the glass façade appearance.
Cookstown firm, Teague & Sally Architects further enhanced the design by introducing many curved sections throughout the building. Metal technology’s system 17SP was a crucial product in achieving a fit between the aesthetically pleasing finished feature and the design entent.
This was an important project for Metal Technology to get involved in, as the new site will be the world’s largest campus dedicated to the wet processing of materials in the sand and aggregates, mining, construction and demolition waste recycling, industrial sands and environmental sectors.
