Case Studies

Sevendale House

The Contract
To undertake the replacement glazing work to the lightwell and atrium of a Grade II listed building in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, as part of a £6million renovation project. The work also included the design and installation of a specialist glazed lift shaft and glass balustrading.

The Challenge
Working within a confined site with other trade contractors, to install a full height glass lift shaft spanning five storeys.

The project also included the installation of glass to the existing enclosed rooflights in the atrium, to allow as much natural light into the building as possible, whilst ensuring as many of the buildings original characteristics remained.

The Solution
Using specialist lifting equipment designed to operate in confined, restricted spaces, our team of experienced glaziers were able to move large and heavy 21.5mm thick toughened laminated glass panels into place. The glass was fixed back onto structural steelwork with laminated bolts to secure into place, creating a unique glass lift shaft which provides a stunning centrepiece to the entrance lobby.

Complying with all health and safety requirements, we also worked on the roof to install brand new rooflights using 10.8mm laminated safety glass into the existing frame. The newly glazed rooflights compliment the full height glazed lift shaft, enhancing the reception lobby and flooding the room with plenty of natural light.

Mark Davies, director of Philip J Davies Holdings, said; “Sevendale House is one of the Northern Quarter’s most striking buildings and this extensive refurbishment has brought it back to its former glory, creating inspiring workspaces within one of the city’s most popular locations.

“The reinstated lightwell, atrium and glass lifts are key features of the building, which, alongside offering Grade A space at a competitive rent, make this scheme stand out amongst its competitors.”
