The Olympic Way building beside Wembley Stadium in London is a mixed-use development of the highest quality, delivering much needed housing and amenity provision to the area. Designed in two phases, a 20-storey modular-built tower, above a 7-storey block of condominiums.

Pinnacle Tower is the second tallest modular building in London and offers spectacular views of Wembley Stadium and beyond. This luxury contemporary development comprises 131 new homes, including studios, 1- and 2-bedroom flats and 2/3-bedroom duplex penthouses. There’s a central courtyard area, generous balconies, and far-reaching views across the London skyline.

Pinnacle Tower - London - APA Facade Systems

The Challenge

The vibrant, busy streets surrounding Olympic Way, often transports thousands of fans to Wembley Stadium, which brings with it huge amounts of noise pollution.

The biggest challenge faced by the architects was to discover an economical solution to block out the noise and improving the internal acoustics of the building.

Our designers came up with the perfect cost-effective solution. The flexibility of our window systems meant that the ST80 window, our highest performing at the time, could be installed on the first 8 storeys.

Our ST70 window was then installed for the remaining 12 storeys when the acoustic requirements weren’t as demanding.

Our profiles have identical sightlines, meaning the aesthetic appearance of the building wasn’t affected. This provided an aesthetically pleasing finish throughout the 20 storeys.

About Olympic Way

Pinnacle Tower is a flagship development designed and located for the very best of urban living. The innovative penthouses have stunning views of Wembley Stadium and direct access to transport links leading all over London. The condominiums are state of the art, hand crafted for contemporary living. 

The bustle of Olympic Way, the awe-inspiring iconic Wembley Arch and the thrill of the world-famous Stadium, all right on your doorstep.

The Glucksman Library officially opened its doors on the 22nd of June 2018. Located in the University of Limerick in Ireland, it is the biggest on-campus library in Ireland and one of the most digitally advanced in the world.

This $37m BAM development is double the size of the original library and includes an ARC – Automated Reserve Collection facility, a 32 ft high vault to store over 500,000 books, operated by a robotic crane for easy retrieval.

The dynamic new building was designed by RKD Architects and has been dramatically reimagined and extended to 81,800 sq. ft. with a sequence of interlinked, beautifully proportioned spaces with large curtain wall screens and windows increasing the natural light.

System Used: TB50 SG Curtain Wall

Our TB50 SG curtain wall system was expertly installed on this project by Season Master Double Glazing. This structurally glazed curtain wall system secures the glass by means of specially designed and tested toggles that are integral to the central seal of the double-glazed units. Silicone sealed, weather-resistant joints produce a flush, noninterrupted finish.

Curtain Wall Ventilation Solutions

Our structurally glazed concealed frame awnings were installed to add ventilation to the internal environment of the building. They fit seamlessly into our TB50 SG curtain wall system, providing a streamlined, aesthetically pleasing finish.

For extra support to the curtain wall, 23 ft. high glass fins were bonded to a 3” wide bespoke aluminum mullion with a structurally clamped and sealed glass face, see image below.
