Systems take central role in Dundee plans


A range of Metal Technology products were specified for the Earl Grey building, a £14 million, five-storey development offering 50,000 sq ft of Grade A office space and two retail units in Dundee.

The building is situated within the Central Waterfront and is part of the ongoing £1 billion regeneration of Dundee Waterfront, one of Scotland’s largest urban developments.

Part of the broader development on the site, which includes 67 apartments for private rent and a 120-bedroom hotel, the regeneration is designed to attract more businesses and tourists to this area of the city.

The building is opposite the newly opened railway station and the hugely popular V&A Museum.

Designed by Glasgow architectural practice Cooper Cromar and built by Robertson Tayside, the project utilised Metal Technology’s System 4-35 dual colour THERMAL casement window, System 17 capped high rise curtain walling and System 17 silicone pointed high rise curtain walling.

“All Metal Technology’s systems are designed to perform seamlessly together to deliver the desired aesthetic and performance standards,” the firm said.

“Used individually or together, they offer complete design flexibility for creative expression with the assurance of value engineered structural, weather and security performance.”
