GG Glass & Glazing recently completed a stunning project for the Primark store in the White City shopping centre in London.
Working on behalf of GRAHAM Construction’s Fit-Out division, an existing customer of ours, we secured this retail job due to our adaptability and availability to guarantee a truly high-end specification in a prestige location. Judging by the photos, we certainly feel like we delivered!
Here is a brief description of the works undertaken:
We were tasked with designing, supplying and installing a main glazed façade using Carey Glass. In using specially-adapted glazing bolts that were bolted to the inner pane of the glass and fixed back to the steel structure, this gave the appearance of a flush glazed system.
The glass specification was as follows:
- 5mm clear, toughened and laminated
- Low iron
- Heat soaked
- Tested with polar white interlayer
- The Primark design was digitally printed to the face of the glass
Thanks to the location of the shopping centre on the mezzanine level and the sheer size of some of the glass panels (with certain ones over 850kg per panel), this was a challenging task to say the least. Fortunately, with a close working relationship with our client and the lead architect IDL, the design process was extensive to ensure that we ultimately achieved Primark’s requirements. Overall, we accomplished success and finished the job two weeks prior to practical completion, and most importantly, on budget.
It goes without saying that everyone here at GG Glass & Glazing is proud of this installation, and we would like to make a special mention to all the staff from the Liverpool branch who had an input to the outcome of delivering the project.
