Abstract

In the last years Gartner Steel and Glass has designed, engineered and erected several complex structures with load carrying glass elements. This presentation concentrates on current projects that will be finished in 2010. Glass bridges are under construction for the projects “Eaton Centre” in Calgary and “Ritz-Carlton Hotel” in Toronto. Projects with glass walls are in design and testing phases for the projects “Willy Brandt Platz” in Frankfurt and “Kravis Center, Living Room” in Los Angeles. Besides an overview of the structural systems this presentation concentrates on challenges in testing, production, transportation, and erection of these structures.
