Project description:

Glassbel’s first project in Manchester area, which was greatly successful. This modern development will offer comfortable centrally located accommodation for business and leisure visitors as well as new office space for global companies.

The unitized curtain walling is made from two types of metal panels, one is matt and the second is with contrasting brushed effect, combined with high performance double glazing units.

An additional key feature of this project is customized quality tolerances, which are stricter than industry standards. This requires more precision in online quality control and inspection processes within the company. Further to that, it was a first project with Kingspan insulation foil, which was applied to spandrel units.
