A worker clearing away the snow-covered sidewalk at the Apple 5th Avenue store in NYC apparently rammed into one of the structural tempered-glass panels that is the store facade. The tempered structure worked as intended and it didn’t collapse after shattering.
It’s been at least a dozen years since I worked on a project using structural architectural glass. A piece this size – special order from PPG – would have cost close to $100K BITD.
I wonder which insurance company will be suing some other insurance company over this?
