Front Windows at Parkview
Today the glass went into the aluminium frames on the front of the first unit. It is in fact a commercial curtain wall which fronts both the 1st and 2nd floors.This faces Stirling Park across the street and will fill that end of the building with green views.
Phoenix Glass and Aluminium brought in a hydraulic lift to raise the aluminium frame into place yesterday and today put in the glass. These machines are incredible and it seem to be easy to learn how to use. Like a lot of the increasing mechanisation in construction, the efficiencies and safety make it well worth renting the equipment.
