For almost 20 years Eckersley O’Callaghan has driven the development of glass.

Whether used for high performance facade applications or as a structural load bearing element, our deep understanding of glass – its properties, failure modes and capabilities – has made us a world leader in the design and engineering of this extraordinary material.

There are few standard codes of practice for glass (compared to more traditional materials like steel and concrete), so we take a first principals design approach, using our extensive and current learning from how it’s made, past project performance and R&D to produce brave, ground-breaking and super-efficient structures of often startling transparency.

On glass-centric projects, our role is to provide the specialist technical expertise for performance, clear navigation of the possible options, and ability to challenge the industry to develop new solutions and products.
