Bennett Architectural were commissioned to refurbish the Aviva Westminster House in the city centre of Manchester.

Using Kawneer AA540 architectural windows and curtain walling a dated building was transformed into a modern office building.

Comprehensive site surveys were undertaken to ensure that the new windows and glazed screens suited with the existing structure.

Lionel Grant, Managing Director at Bennett Architectural commented,

“The slimline profiles were designed by our Design Team to reflect the architectural intent and give the internal environment far more natural daylight.

“Challenges included enhanced acoustic performance, given the city centre location, solar gain was addressed as well as improved thermal insulation. Bronze anodic powder coat was used to give the building some vibrancy and laminated glazing for improved safety and security.

“Working on existing structures always presents new challenges but with good communication with our construction partners we are able to turn tired structures into buildings to be proud of and fit for the future.”
