The GG Glass Manchester team has completed the supply and installation of a full curtain wall shopfront and opening at a new Costa Coffee store on Northwich Retail Park.

 

Description

GG Glass supplied and installed a large curtain wall and door installation at one of Costa Coffee’s most recent opening in Northwich Retail Park, Cheshire.

A fixed curtain wall screen with automatic swing single door, the glazed shop frontage encompassed a vast area of some 10metres in length and approximately three metres in height.

Designed under the brands latest interior guidelines, the framing is set against a leaning aspect, requiring a collaborative design approach between GG Glass and the client. Under detailed specifications, a senior architectural curtain walling system was installed to the side elevation with a senior thermally broken system to the front elevation.

The fixed curtain wall was designed and manufactured at the firms Manchester depot with the client opting for a single swing door.
