Bespoke GRP portal beams for Birmingham Mailbox

Bespoke GRP portal beams for Birmingham Mailbox

Design & Display Structures were appointed to design, manufacture and install 94 portal frames as part of a massive £50m refurbishment scheme at Birmingham Mailbox.

These modular GRP sections were manufactured as fully finished components to simulate Armourcoat (polished plaster), all ready for the fast track installation phase.

Each portal set (x94) comprised of 11.3m long horizonal beams and a pair of vertical supporting uprights which were 5.3m tall.

Lifted to high level under the new atrium roof these portal frames form a significant feature in the central walkway providing larger public areas in addition to the improvements to the surrounding infrastructure.

The entire retail mall will be enclosed and sky lit, to create an urban room with new facades, finishes and store frontages.
