Indeglas complete a further set of interior glass solutions

Indeglas supplied internal glass partitioning for the Scottish War Blinded Charity’s new Hawkhead Centre in Paisley.

This is the second successful project Indeglas have undertaken for the charity, having worked on its Linburn Centre in West Lothian, seven years ago.

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, Indeglas distributes and installs all over the UK, and is the only full-service, Category 1 subcontractor which can source, design, and install Deko’s leading-edge glass technologies.

Jeanette MacIntyre, Managing Director of Indeglas, said: “The Hawkhead Centre marks another precisely executed installation of award winning glass solutions by our engineers and operatives.

“This building is primarily for veterans who have visual impairments, so the method by which light was transferred at high level was very important to the concept design of architect Page and Park. Our ability to provide solutions that met the brief exemplifies the high level of expertise we bring to all projects.”

As part of the design, all internal glass was designed and fitted as ‘clerestory’ panels; this enables natural light to enhance the interior at high level whilst avoiding any glare or confusing reflective surfaces at eye level, a vital consideration for those with visual impairments.

The £17 million project has created 150 new jobs, and 100 military veterans have already signed up to use the facility, along with residents of the nearby Royal Blind facility, Jenny’s Well. 

Mrs MacIntyre said: “The architects selected the glass solutions we developed for the earlier project we completed at the Linburn building, so it’s another piece of repeat business and a vote of confidence – by both the client and the architects - in our work.”

The internal glass installations at the Hawkhead Centre, which had a contract value of £44,000, contains acoustic-rated interior glass solutions throughout. The Centre was built by CCG.
