Schueco products used in Glasgows new £74m museum

Schuco Partner

As a supplier and installer of Schueco windows and doors, Clear View were thrilled to learn that two Schueco SU 90 unitised façade systems form an important structural element in Glasgow’ stunning new £74 million Riverside Museum of Transport.

Schueco’ SU 90 unitised system was used because the irregular shape of the building meant that the chosen system had to combine stability with the ability to accommodate building movement with a sway of plus or minus 300mm.

This meant very tight tolerances, hence the need for a factory-built unitised system able to utilise the benefits of prefabrication to guarantee the very high quality required.

The snaking zinc-clad building with a striking zigzag roof has a huge central display area of around 5,000 sq metres that is completely open and unsupported by columns.

The project was commissioned and part-funded by Glasgow City Council, with other public money coming from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Work started on site in 2007 and was completed in late autumn 2010 and though the Museum was only officially opened in June this year it is already proving to be popular with both visitors and locals.

Clear View, one of Yorkshire’s leading designers, manufacturers and installers of aluminium windows and doors, is proud to offer Schueco’s innovative products to its customers. We offer a range of innovative sliding windows and doors from Schueco that provide the highest security combined with the sleekest design.
