NEW WORK: Beak Street, London 

Shop front in Beak Street | Structural glazing by Structura UKTo some, this project in Beak Street may appear to be just another shopfront. However, those in our industry will appreciate that smaller sites often come with more complexity and intricacy.

Due to the age of the building, the team had a very tricky concrete level to negotiate; their ability to think quickly and calculate solutions was a real testament to their determination. Uneven levels are not a friend to curtain walling because the accuracy of instalment is so critical to success. But undeterred by this, the team installed additional bespoke brackets to ensure a successful outcome.

Fortunately, other aspects offered smoother sailing. Crafted at our in-house factory and installed with great care by the site team, the Schuco curtain walling and door system have given this project a real wow factor.

In the heart of Soho, working in Beak Street was testing and rewarding in equal measure; a high footfall area with only a partial pavement closure in which the team worked to an incredibly tight square footage. Completing the work is a true credit to them.
