Bent Glass Railing & Circular Staircase
The Woodlands Medical Center – Healthcare with a Twist
The recently completed South Tower expansion to the Memorial Hermann – “The Woodlands Medical Center“, in Houston, Texas, has added a total of 351,636 square feet to the hospital’s campus. The expansion increases the hospital’s total bed count for patients to over 500 from its previous 397; adds 10 new operating rooms; and expands the hospital’s endoscopy center, heart center, emergency center and diagnostic imaging.
JLL were selected to provide Program and Project Management for the construction of this significant project, with Austin Commercial Services as the General Contractor, PhiloWilke as the Architect and SSA as the Engineer.
“As a testament to the resilience and dedication of everyone involved, the tower has endured a variety of significant environmental setbacks, including enduring hurricane season, the pandemic and, most recently, Winter Storm Uri,” said James Selmser (JLL). “We’re proud of this project and know that the world-class employees of Memorial Hermann will provide exceptional patient outcomes“.

Glasshape were once again delighted to partner up with Berger Iron Works, Inc. initially providing them with digitally scanned Field Measurements of the Overlook Railing and Circular Staircase structures, whilst they were in the construction phase. Going on to produce a 3D CAD Model of these structures, referencing the point cloud data captured in the Field Measure, to ensure accuracy in the production of Glasshapes signature TemperShield® 14.28mm (9/16″) bent, toughened (tempered) and laminated glass.
