Novum was appointed to carry out the design, engineering, manufacture, supply and installation of a linear roof where the glass was to be point supported by glass fins. Through close liaison and planning, it was agreed that the installation of the roof light component, including the glass, would be undertaken from the basement of the building as opposed to the roof as originally planned. This method would allow the interior of the building to remain protected from the elements for the duration of the construction.
