SageGlass electrochromic glass from Saint-Gobain has been chosen to create what is said to be the world’s largest smart glass installation, at Rio Business Park, a 1.6million square foot office development in Bangalore, India.
The SageGlass India team will work with local glazier Glass Wall Systems to install and commission more than 12,000 smart glass panels comprising 200,000 square feet of SageGlass Harmony as well as controls, and software, for the project, which is already underway. Google will serve as the primary tenant for the space beginning in August 2022.
“As employee wellness and sustainability become higher priorities for savvy building owners, SageGlass is in a unique position to deliver both,” said Namrata Vora, SageGlass VP of Sales, North America and India/Asia Pacific. “We are so pleased to partner with Bagmane Group to create a healthy, sustainable workplace for their tenants at Rio Business Park. And this project will benefit from some of our latest innovations, including SageGlass Harmony — the first electrochromic glass to tint on a gradient.”
Aditya Bagmane, director at Bagmane Group added: “We strive to create premiere workplace experiences for our world-class customers.
“For this office development, we are working with a tech customer who expects the best. We chose SageGlass for this innovative building because of their superior smart glass offering, ability to invest in cutting-edge technology, and Saint-Gobain’s presence in India.”
