Our Process

The challenge with this project was to create one continuous glass block wall with a unique and varied pattern while keeping steel angle supports hidden. The wall also needed to ensure school safety and maintain fire rating standards. We collaborated with the architect and the structural engineer to ensure that the all of the details conformed to the manufacturer’s specifications.

  • Fire rated sealant
  • More than 3,800 pieces of glass block
