In construction glazing, the first significant and still existing works of Herman Nieminen, are, for example, the beautiful lead glazing of the downstairs area of Hamburg Börs, designed by Willy Baer. In most of the works, Herman Nieminen’s handwritten signature can be seen. Even in banks and in old houses of Turku, the handmade signature of Herman Nieminen can still be found.
Major works of Kaune have also been farmhouses in south-western Finland, the premises of Turun Sanomat, the sanatorium of Paimio and most of the buildings in this area designed by Alvar Aalto like the glazing and mountings of the county hospital at the time. After the war, construction glazing, which had been in decline, was started again by renovating the glass ceiling of the museum of Turku in 1963. Since the 1970s, construction glazing has been an important sector for the business. Kaune has done glazing as a subcontractor for most construction businesses in Turku. Iron structures have also been made – all the way to elevator doors.
