Tip Top

City: Auckland
Architect: Peter Swann Architects & Engineers
Construction Company: Cassidy Construction
Completed: 2012

The Tip Top building is an iconic part of the Auckland Motorway network. For many years it has been the multi-coloured building of red blue and yellow - but was in need of replacement.

The new Thermosash flush glaze unitised system has refreshed this icon of Auckland; not only does it look great but it has some great performance aspects as well.

Located adjacent to the one of the busiest motorways in the country it needed to perform acoustically. The double glazed blue tint windows with a high light transmission but also a high solar shading coefficient provide a calming environment internally.

"The Thermosash unitised system delivered the clean modernised look needed for Auckland's iconic 'Tip Top' corner. The Thermosash system allows for a quick installation period, an important factor for us as project managers - as the office behind the new façade installation remained 100% operational." says Aaron Trembath, Architectural Director at Peter Swan Ltd
