Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures
The Structural Engineer, Volume 102, Issue 1, 2024, Page(s) 20-21
This month's CROSS report concerns a report that the glass produced by some processors has not been properly heat-soaked and is therefore much more likely to shatter in use.
Graham Coult and Rebecca Hartwell examine the potential for greater recycling, or reuse, of glass and outline actions that the construction industry could take to advance this goal.
This article focuses on two structural glass elements located in the entry vestibule of Atlantis The Royal hotel: Deluge – a pair of all-glass lifts with water cascading on the outer surface; and Alight – a feature involving fire, water and glass.
