KIA Plaza has lecture rooms, a conference hall, coffee shops, rest area and 176 staff quarters, as well as outdoor walking garden and football field. The building is a square structure with 16,900 pieces of SGP coloured glazed laminated louvre glass on the façade, which provides the building with a gorgeous “coat”, making it full of modernist style, all of the louvre glass are provided by Tianjin NorthGlass.
The ultra-clear SGP laminated glass is selected for the project. The outer glass is made by semi-tempered coloured glazed glass with white dot. The uniform glass louvres are not only beautiful, energy-saving and neat, but also easy to clean, free to adjust, and easy to use.
The quality requirements of this project are very high, and the quantity is large, the processing is complicated, the supply cycle is short. In order to meet the needs of customers, the technical members of Tianjin NorthGlass discussed and studied new technologies and new methods. All the glass was successfully delivered within two months, which was fully recognized by the owner.
