The Vancouver Architectural Products department successfully designed and executed a retrofit upgrade of an existing skylight system atop the downtown HSBC tower. Bringing concept to reality, the retrofit involved redesigning the system to go from four-sided captured to four-sided SSG – a challenge our team was excited to undertake.
Our design team based the proposal on an existing four-sided SSG toggle system. The design creatively sat a new custom die atop of the back section of the existing skylight. In conjunction with custom clips, the new system negated a complete tear down and removal of the skylight.
