PortPlus toughened glass, provided by HansenGlass, was used to create the atrium and staircases for Alexander Graham Bell House, more commonly known as BT's offices in Edinburgh, designed by Bennetts Associates. Fabricators were Charles Henshaw, Edinburgh.

About 400m2 of FortPlus, which is five times stronger than ordinary glass, was used for safety and aesthetic reasons. Set in the landscaped Edinburgh Park, BT's four-storey, blue and red aluminium glazed facade is dramatically lit at dusk, showing off the spacious interior design and architectural metalwork.
