The revamp of Meadowhall Shopping Centre was a unique project for Bennett Architectural as the work included Pilkington Planar screens and bespoke designed shop fronts for each unit.

Our installation team undertook out of hours work so that the UK’s fourth largest shopping centre could remain open during the refurbishment.

In addition, our team worked around busy times such as Christmas where late night shopping was offered, leading to the project reaching it’s completion in December 2017.

Our team provided glazing solutions for well-known high street brands such as Thorntons, Goldsmiths and Marks & Spencer, plus a complete Pilkington Planar façade for House of Fraser.

As well as shop front glazing, we also designed and installed channel glazing for lifts located at the Boots branch and the Park Lane lifts.

Working in close collaboration with Laing O’Rourke and BDP Architects ensured that Meadowhall Shopping Centre, which sees 30 million visitors per year, was completed on time and within budget.

Lionel Grant, Managing Director at Bennett Architectural commented,

“The Meadowhall project was all bespoke, except for the Pilkington Planar screens which were extremely challenging.

“The majority was structurally bonded screen-printed glass with designated patterns to pre-cut aluminium sheets. These were then hung frame a steel subframe fitted back to the existing steel work.

“The results showcase a stunning transformation for Meadowhall, a project we were proud to support Laing O’Rourke with.”
