About Project:

We are glad that Charter Hall – Sydney Masonic Center has joined our list of happy customers. This follow glass repair works that we did on the premises. Sydney Masonic Center is at 66 Goulburn Street right within the city of Sydney and it’s just a short distance from both the Central Stations and the Museum. The center is primarily used for holding conferences and functions and it has a very big and ample parking.

The Nature of the job

The maintenance that Magic Glass carried out at the center involved the removal of a large broken glass panel. The second part of the task involved replacing the broken glass panel in the roof top. This is very important given that the center hosts regular meetings and it would not be a good idea to host a conference where there is a broken roof top glass.

For these jobs, the materials we used were:

  • Custom made 16.76 clear toughened Laminated H Glass
  • Safety glass with polished edges all round
  • The approximate glass size was about 2500 x 2200
  • Glass weighed 260 kg.

Job Procedure & Considerations:

We did the job on a Saturday morning to avoid interrupting pedestrian traffic. This was ideal for the client because it was a day when the café at the Center was closed and so there was not much activity going on. This helps to avoid any inconveniences we might have caused while working on a regular weekday.

For this job, we had to use cranes and scaffolding because it involves fixing the glass some distance off the ground.  Because we were using cranes, we also have to apply for special council permits to use the cranes and secondly, we had to close some sections of the road next to where we were working and redirect traffic to use alternative routes. This was so that we do not cause inconveniences to other motorists with the movement of our cranes.

If you are in need of any such services kindly get in touch with us and we will be glad to give you high quality services to make you one of our happy clients.

Conclusion:

Magic Glass handles a number of glass repair works for a number of clients both residential and commercial. We know for a fact that there are times when you need to replace your glass and you need to rely on experts to that you have a good job done. We are here to offer such services.

This photo is from the rooftop where the glass is to be installed you can see the Magic Glass truck far below and our massive crane (awesome right?) fitted with vacuum suction lifters, hoisting the slabs of glass into place.

2 trusty Magic Glass glaziers prepare a single panel of glass to be slotted into place on the roof top.  It’s also a great shot of how strong these suction lifters are.  This panel measures over 4m Squared and weighs over 30kgs.  Cleaning the edges and preparing the seals is vital to a long lasting and attractive install.

The moment of truth!  -Having measured the job a week ago and produced each custom made panel of glass in out factory its now time for our glaziers to make it fit in place.  This is the moment that makes or breaks a job.  If the guy doing the measurements got it wrong there will be a lot of unhappy people to answer to.  Luckily our guys are guru’s and this sort of stuff doesn’t happen when you use Magic Glass

This picture is from inside the building looking up through the newly installed glass ceiling. The cut stone feature wall, naked steel beam and concrete really show off the architectural styling of the new glass panels.

Finally the finished glass installation, not a bad view off the coast of Sydney either… 

As a professional glazier this shot makes me really happy.  As as home owner the client was thrilled.  These huge glass panels are 17.52mm Clear Toughened ‘Sunergy’ laminate glass.  Not only are they highly attractive and decorative but super functional as well, allowing natural light to stream into the home all year around while controlling temperature for cooler summers and warmers winters inside the home.
