Contractor DSP Construction
Bennetts were appointed as the glazed Façade contractor on the expansion and redevelopment of Aldi UK’s Headquarters based in Atherstone near Tamworth.
The fast-growing supermarket chain were named Employer of the Year 2017 by Grocer Gold, and their expansion to their offices re-affirms their commitment to their staff.
The first challenge for our team was to replicate the design of the existing windows which are incorporated on buildings located in other areas within the site.
New dyes were developed in partnership with Kawneer allowing Bennett’s to provide the correct aesthetics but also provide suitable structural stability. The AA540 series windows were chosen specifically, the AA543 tilt turn window. These were installed into a pre-cast concrete panel/brisk slip design façade.
As well as the windows, there were three large atriums three storeys in height plus fully glazed sloped roofing areas. These were designed using Kawneer’s AA100 curtain wall and included self-cleaning glass to the roof areas, actuated smoke vents and a full perimeter ‘Brise Soleil’ sun shading system.
Rob Bennett, Sales Director commented,
“The north and south blocks at Aldi headquarters incorporated very innovative designs that were value and performance driven.”
