To provide full height structural glazing to several shop fronts on one of Manchester’s premium shopping destinations; The Avenue, Spinningfields.
To contract was for the design and installation of a bespoke glazing system that provided unobstructed views. The works was to be carried out whilst the remaining shops on The Avenue were open to the public. This meant that the co-ordination of delivery and the installation of the large glass panels had to be executed in such a way that maintained public safety at all times
With our specialist glazing team, operating powered access equipment and a mini-crane, we were able to meet the requirements of the client by installing the Hansen Glass ‘Thermospan’ glazing system. Toughened laminated glass of 19.5mm and 25.5mm thick was fixed using specialist stainless steel brackets connecting the individual panes of glass. This transfers the load back to the structural sections within the building.
Toughened glass doors were fitted with stainless steel patch fittings, floor springs and designer door furniture – which makes for a complete package for the most discerning of clients
