Masdar City PRT Station: Abu Dhabi, UAE | Backlit Recycled Glass Feature Walls
Architect: Foster + Partners | Contractors: Taahud General Contracting & Amana Walbridge
Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, designed by Foster and Partners, is developing into the world’s first carbon neutral and zero-waste city. In its first phase, GPI showcased its outstanding leadership in sustainable feature wall design when commissioned to create, engineer, fabricate and install nearly 3,000 square feet of backlit glass feature walls throughout the city's Personal Rapid Transit Station. To meet the ambitious environmental considerations demanded by the project, GPI supplied a moveable/reusable illuminated wall with 100% recycled glass panels illuminated by custom Infuse™ Flat-Lite™ LED panels, providing energy-efficient light with an extended life span.
The result: streamlined backlit glass wall design with sleek 100% post-consumer waste recycled glass surfaces that meets stringent sustainability requirements. Turnkey design, engineering, supply and installation services for quality control and meticulous attention to detail.
