Project Overview

This project won in competitive tender comprised enabling works to existing areas of the shopping centre that formed part of the entrance and waiting area. JM Scully installed a feature ceiling and carried out additional works to the area which included a strip out of existing ceilings and fittings allowing Costa coffee to carry out an install for a new unit.

The main entrance in this area was revamped and we installed a new feature light from the ceiling and new glazed entrance doors. The area had to remain open to the public at all times during the works. The light feature was connected to the ceiling which we had to strip out and reinforce with steel to take feature light which was some 19metres above!

All this area was fully decorated from the ground floor up to the new ceiling level. The new glazed doors had to be supported from newly installed structural steels providing support to the glazing above.

Completing this project we resprayed all the exterior frames and made extensive repairs to the glass canopy around our demise.
