Boroughmuir High School and St Cecilia's Hall both won recently at the RIAS awards.

Indeglas, the Cumbernauld-based business recognised as a world class supplier of interior glass solutions, has been specified by architects Page Park to develop the design, then carry out the supply and installation of internal glass screens and fully glazed doors at St Cecilia’s Hall the University of Edinburgh’s music museum and teaching space in the heart of the city’s Old Town.

 

Internal glass screens were individually scribed to existing stonework arches with feature glazed fire screens enabling light to flood through the building. Bespoke detailing throughout ensured that this architectural gem came to life with old and new presenting in complete harmony.

 

The restoration of St Cecilia’s  Hall recently won an RIAS award, as was Boroughmuir High School another project recently completed by Indeglas.

 

Indeglas, formerly known as Deko Scotland, is a specialist contractor and sole distributor in the UK and Ireland for the products of award-winning glass manufacturer, DEKO of Denmark.

 

Established 17 years ago, Indeglas distributes and installs all over the UK, and is one of the only full-service, Tier 2 subcontractors which can source, design, and install DEKO’s leading-edge glass solutions.

 

Jeanette MacIntyre, founder and Managing Director of Indeglas, said: “the St Cecilia’s Hall project required a high level of craftsmanship as a number of screens needed to be templated, scribed to stonework arches then glass-fitted to shapes which were extremely irregular. Our site installation teams produced a very high level of finish. To look at the screens now you would think they had always been there.

 

“We are, of course, very pleased to have been selected to undertake this contract and see it as a clear indication that Indeglas is rapidly becoming the preferred supplier of a growing number of the country’s top performing design teams and construction companies.

 

“Equally, as a result of our expertise in delivering interior glass solutions, we are able to offer the University directly the maintenance and servicing of the installation for the lifetime of the building, an aspect of our service provision which brings confidence and security for the client from the design stage all the way through the life of the building.

 

“As a Scottish business, the opportunity to work on such prestigious projects for the University of Edinburgh is a huge honour. We offer the University, its Estates team, appointed architects and contractors, the benefits of our nearly 70 years of collective industry experience, as well as our commitment to full client engagement at every level of our business.”
