EAG make their mark in Norwich
English Architectural Glazing has been appointed by main contractor Ellmer Try to design, fabricate and install the cladding, curtain walling, brise soliel and structural glazing as part of the multi million pound redevelopment to the Marks and Spencer Norwich store.
The 17 month redevelopment programme will see the current 79,000 sq ft of shop floor space increase to 115,000 sq ft, making this one of the largest M&S stores in the UK. The scheme designed by Benoy architects, will feature a "living wall" laced with plants to help absorb local pollution and fed by a rain harvest roof system, whilst the glass corner fašade will maximise light into the store and create two new entrances providing links into main shopping areas of the city.
Edward Whipp, Pre-Construction Director of EAG, said "This will be our first collaboration with Ellmer Try and our third M&S project bringing previous experience to our mutual benefit. We work all over the country, but with the recent opening of our new factory in Attleborough we're delighted to have secured this local project".
EAG commence on site January 2011 the project will continue without closing the store and is expected to complete in Oct 2011.
