Glazing work at Capital Gate Tower ends

By Staff Writer

Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec) has said that glazing work on the iconic Capital Gate Tower, currently under construction next to Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, is practically complete.

More than 12,500 individually shaped glass panels have been installed on Capital Gate's facade in a complex engineering feat, which has taken Adnec and its construction partners ten months to complete. In an intricate operation, each pane of glass had to be a slightly different shape and fitted at a different angle due to the building's unique lean and its curved profile.

"I would like to thank everyone involved in Capital Gate's development," said Simon Horgan, Adnec Group CEO.

"The tower's unique shape and character made the installation of the glazing particularly challenging for our engineers."
