Saint-Gobain Glass at ABW Tower, Gurgaon
The ABW Tower is a magnificent presence on the NH-8, strategically located in the heart of Gurgaon. Developed by the renowned ABW Group and designed by Sanjay Puri Architects, the complex has been envisioned to be a landmark edifice in the region's real estate industry. Saint-Gobain's expertise and experience in glazing for commercial spaces is reflected in the ABW Tower, as is evident from the glass facades of the building. ABW Tower is home to commercial and corporate houses spread over 1 lakh sq.ft. Of this, 28000 sq.ft. is exclusively dedicated to retail showrooms that enjoy pride of place in the tower. Hence glass has been selectively chosen, keeping in mind the specific demands of glazing for commercial spaces. From Saint-Gobain's exhaustive range of glass variants, SGG COOL-LITE ST 450 was selected. As an advanced energy-efficient solar control glass, it makes for the perfect choice when it comes to glazing for commercial spaces. SGG COOL-LITE is also ideally suited for a tropical clime like India's, as it not just cuts the excess heat but also optimizes light transmission. At the ABW Tower, SGG COOL-LITE ST 450 was used in the facade glazing as a double-glazed, comfort glass. The reflective glass was able to keep the heat out and ensure the interiors were cooler during the daytime, thereby reducing air conditioning costs. By allowing in natural daylight, it also negated the need for artificial lighting. Glazing for commercial spaces not only have to provide the comfort factor but also contribute to environmental sustainability. The SGG COOL-LITE ST 450 conforms to LEED and ECBC norms, making it a green glass. Blending sustainability with style, the ABW Tower at Gurgaon indeed stands tall in the realm of contemporary architecture.
