Architects: Langley Hall Associates
Fabricator: PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd
Main Contractor: Ashe Construction
Project Value: £30,000
System Used: Comar 6EFT Stick Build & 7P.i CD
Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems; with their approved fabricator PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd have completed a new build Costa Coffee drive-thru restaurant in Bedford. This is part of the Costa Coffee nationwide expansion programme and is located on a high traffic retail park which enjoys ample parking.
Comar 6EFT stick build curtain walling was specified for this project. Comar 6EFT provides a capped curtain walling solution and offers architects the opportunity to maximise large glazed areas as it has the slimmest sightlines available making it the perfect choice for the glazed facade of this restaurant.
In a very busy retail environment, Comar 7P.i Commercial Doors are a natural choice. Not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding/folding, they have been designed specifically for retail applications where high traffic solutions are required. The Comar 7P.i CD swing doors are required to comply with the Disability & Equality Act 2010 and were installed with a low-rise threshold. For safety anti-finger trap stiles were also fitted with Axim concealed transom closers which were hung directly from the Comar 6EFT curtain wall again enforcing the reduced the sight lines.
All Comar approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing. PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
