Glass shopfront installed at Nottingham’s newest café in Broadmarsh Shopping Centre


Glass shopfront installed at Nottingham’s newest café in Broadmarsh Shopping Centre

A new café has opened in the Intu Broadmarsh Shopping Centre in Nottingham, and Essential Projects was appointed to manufacture and install a new glass shopfront.

Currently under regeneration, the Intu Broadmarsh development is a £250m project that will help improve access routes from the nearby railway station to the shopping centre.

The shopping centre itself will undergo a £134m transformation that will provide a much needed facelift and bring a cinema, bowling alley, food court and new shops.

As part of that plan, the new café named Crème opened in January 2018, thanks to a £200,000 investment from the owners, located at the far end of the shopping centre, close to the entrance of the bus station.

The new café hopes to attract significant interest from passing customers once the redevelopment is complete.

The interior fit out of the café has been designed to represent a contemporary, rustic style eatery, which serves breakfast, light lunches, cakes and drinks. The café will hope to attract passing trade once the new bus station and car park re-open.

Throughout the design process, Essential Projects visited the site multiple times to undertake a thorough site survey and recommend design solutions that would suit the existing surroundings.

After a design was agreed, Essential Projects was contracted to manufacture and install a 7.5m long glass shopfront mounted within a steel frame and an entrance door.

The new glass shopfront, now provides a health and safety compliant glass entrance to the 75 seat capacity café.

Commenting on the project, Essential Projects, Managing Director, said “Essential Projects has provided glass shop fronts for some of the UK’s leading brands such as Waitrose, Next and Boots. This project demonstrates that we have the expertise and ability to manufacture and install high quality solutions to a variety of different projects of all shapes and sizes.”
