IABSE Bath 2017 Creativity and Collaboration

Karl Singporewala will present a paper at the IABSE Conference 19-20th April which is focused upon instilling imagination and innovation in structural design.
He will describe a new type of translucent pre-fabricated structural cast glass assembly with high thermal performance, good light transmission and acoustic rating that forms a large part of the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre facades. The assembly represents an innovation in large unitized U-channel cast glass elements that have been fabricated and sealed off-site and installed on site in modules.
