Cornwall Glass supports refurbishment of Brighton's Grand Hotel
Cornwall Glass has supplied more than 1000 IGU’s for the specialist refurbishment of Brighton’s iconic Grand Hotel.
Working with David Salisbury Commercial, the 18-month project completed the end of March, involving the supply of more than 450 windows and doors.
Joe Marsh, Commercial Account Manager, said: “No two rooms were the same so each window and door was bespoke. The other challenge was achieving the right balance from a conservation perspective. There was a requirement for a high degree of flexibility plus high capacity manufacture on Cornwall Glass. We needed a supply partner that would work closely with us but which manufactured IGU’s to the exacting standards a high degree of quality that we needed”, explained Joe.
He continued: “We were dealing with some very large volumes of glass, while the glazing window was very narrow so we needed the quality to be there from the outset, in order to guarantee fulfilment.”
Cornwall Glass manufactures IGU’s at three locations throughout the South West including St Austell, Highbridge plus a purpose-built IGU facility at Plymouth.
Going into operation at the beginning of 2016 the state-of-the-art manufacturing hub handles 57 different glass types, ranging from 4mm to 19mm specifications, with capacity to manufacture up to 2000 units each day.
They supplied almost 1,000 high performing double-glazed units to the two-year project period.
Mark Norcliffe, Sales Director at Cornwall Glass said: “We have three IGU manufacturing facilities and collectively they give us a significant capacity but also flexibility within our offer, which is clearly very important and a key advantage in large scale commercial refurbishment.”
