Essential Projects has been contracted to install a bespoke glass staircase for a refurbished Poundland store in the Bretton Centre retail park.
The newly sold £17.5m Bretton Retail Centre is strategically located adjacent to the A47, only 2 miles away from Peterborough town centre.
The retail park spans over 129,000 sq ft and is home to major retailers including Boots, Sports Direct, Pets at Home and a flagship 67,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s super store.
As part of a significant investment to improve the stores and facilities within the retail park, Essential Projects was appointed by Nottingham based design specialist CWP Group to manufacture, supply and install a bespoke glass staircase for a Poundland store.
The glass staircase was installed to the ground level to provide customers with safe access to the first-floor shopping area. It features 6mm thick folded interlocking treads and will be held in place by structural support columns. A 7.5m wall mounted handrail finished in satin polished stainless steel was installed to the staircase. To provide a striking aesthetic look, the glass staircase was finished red oxide primed, ready to be painted on site by another contractor.
Essential Projects was also contracted to provide bespoke structural steelwork which was installed to an already existing mezzanine floor to support a new elevator opening.
Over 14m of stainless steel and glass balustrade will also be fitted by Essential Projects to the void of the front atrium of the mezzanine floor.
Commenting, Essential Projects, Managing Director, Eliot Saxton said “Manufacturing bespoke staircases for the retail sector has become a real specialty for Essentials Projects. We have manufactured a number of high quality staircases for retail clients right across the UK, who return to us time and time again due to the quality of products and our reputation for reliability.”
