One of the most recognisable buildings in Keynsham, United Kingdom has been given a new lease of life which includes a number of new restaurants, a cinema, spa and swimming pool alongside over 55's living accommodation.

The former Fry's chocolate factory in Keynsham was built in the 1920s, and it later became home to Cadbury. After a £60million investment, St Monica Trust has converted the iconic former Cadbury's chocolate factory into 151 assisted living apartments and a 90-bed nursing care home was project managed by the Andrew Wilson Partnership, with architects KWL of South Wales, and AWW of Bristol.

AluK Commercial Fabricators, EYG Commercial were selected to supply and install approximately 900 AluK commercial windows, curtain walling and a number of automatic commercial doors.
