The facade of the upper levels of the Wellington Regional Hospital features a glass curtainwall, which was supplied and installed by Thermosash

Aluminium and glazing play a large role in much of contemporary architecture and despite the extensive use of terracotta tiling on the lower levels, the Wellington Regional Hospital is no exception. Thermosash was contracted to create both the exterior cladding and the glass curtain walls on the upper levels of the building.

The exterior cladding on Levels D through to H is a total-clad unitised system incorporating aluminium panels, glass and interior jockey sashes. Large portions of conventional curtain wall were also installed in areas of the lower levels.

As with all major projects, there were challenges involved, says Thermosash's Wellington area manager Dave Rooker.

"As glass and aluminium were used extensively on the upper levels, it was important that our products represented the architect's original intent. Dies and profiles used were custom made for this project."

Additionally, the original plan changed from using a conventional ribbon window system with timber-framed and clad spandrels to a fully unitised system. Thermosash manufactured and glazed these units in its factory. Dave Rooker says an advantage of this method is that the building is closed in faster, without the need for scaffolding.
