Glass plays a crucial part in creating the visual appearance of many commercial and retail buildings. Understanding glass; its relationship to light, transparency, reflection and what these qualities can achieve in a building and the appreciation of its users, helps realise the impact that this material can have on the built aesthetic.
It is possible through the introduction of high performance glass for new builds or retrospective re-glazes, that buildings can enjoy the benefits of increased energy efficiency, by way of reduced internal lighting, decreased glare and solar absorbency of the façade; thereby reduced radiant transmission, offering a potential saving on air-conditioning capital and /or running costs.
