The revamp of Meadowhall Shopping Centre was a unique project to work on, with Pilkington Planar screens and bespoke designed shop fronts for each unit.
With the shopping centre remaining open during the refurbishment, our installation team undertook out of hours work as well as working around busy times such as Christmas where late night shopping was offered.
Bennetts provided glazing solutions for well-known high street brands such as Thorntons, Goldsmiths, Marks and Spencer as well as a complete Pilkington Planar façade for House of Fraser.
As well as shop front glazing Bennetts also designed and installed channel glazing for lifts located at the Boots branch and the Park Lane lifts.
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.”
