Past glass-replacement projects:


60 Martin Place, Sydney – Glass Cladding and facade feature installation

Apex Facades was engaged to address glass replacement needs for this striking commercial high-rise in Sydney. The building’s design included expansive overhung sections, which created numerous access challenges for our rope access technicians. Our team successfully completed the rectification works, ensuring a timely handover to the client.

Constitution Place, Canberra – Glass and facade feature installation

Because of construction delays, Apex Facades was enlisted to finish over 200 glass replacements and install facade features. With limited space and heavy foot traffic on-site, cranes were impractical for most of the building. Our specialised technicians successfully completed all work on time, primarily using rope access hauling methods.

Emporium Hotel, Southbank Brisbane – Heli-lift glass installation

Apex Facades showcased our expertise in high-rise glazing with a daring helicopter lift of a 500kg glass panel over Brisbane’s CBD. Facing challenges with traditional methods due to the glass’s size and the rooftop bar’s inaccessible location, we proposed a helicopter lift as the most efficient and cost-effective solution. Eight months of planning, including obtaining necessary permits and ensuring COVID-19 compliance, led to a successful execution. With a floor crane, the glass was installed efficiently after landing on the hotel roof, marking a remarkable achievement in high-rise glazing. View the video to see our team in action!
