Energy efficient glass for £40m Boeing factory

Energy efficient glass for £40m Boeing factory

AGC high-performance glass was chosen by D5 Architects for the façade glazing on Boeing’s recently opened £40 million factory on the site of the Advance Manufacturing Research Centre in Sheffield.

AGC Ipasol Neutral 50/27 glass was chosen due to its neutral appearance and energy efficient properties (Light Transmission 50%, Solar Factor 27% and Ug value 1.0W/m2.K).

Highly energy efficient glazing was an important element of the façade strategy as the building is designed to meet BREEAM Excellent standards and the client brief focussed heavily on employee well-being and sustainability.

Client: Boeing
Architect: D5
Main contractor: J F Finnegan Ltd
Façade contractor: Bonham & Berry
IGU production: Interpane
