Our report last week that glass panels installed by specialist contractor Portal had been dislodged in the atrium of Portcullis House, "Glazing falls out at Portcullis House", was based on inaccurate information. No glass panels have cracked or have performed in any way less than their design requirements and no specialists have been called in to examine the glazing. There have been no problems with the courtyard glazing.
Pilkington Architectural, which supplied the Planar glass for the atrium roof, confirms that it is unaware of any problems with the glazing.
We regret the error and apologise to Portal.
Portal has stated that the courtyard roof, designed to withstand bomb blast loading, will form a fantastic feature of the completed building and it is extremely proud of its involvement and continuing involvement in this project.
