Concert hall restoration is music to glass firm’s ears

CUMBERNAULD-based Indeglas has been specified by architects Page Park to develop the design and carry out the supply and installation of fully glazed doors and internal glass screens at St Cecilia’s Hall, the University of Edinburgh’s music museum and teaching space.

The glass screens were individually scribed to existing stonework arches with feature glazed fire screens, allowing light to flood through the building. The restoration of St Cecilia’s Hall has been recognised with a RIAS award.

Indeglas is the sole distributor in the UK and Ireland for the products of Danish-based glass manufacturer DEKO.

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.

“As a Scottish business, the opportunity to work on such prestigious projects for the University of Edinburgh is a huge honour.”
