Major refurb for iconic Manchester building

As part of a large-scale renovation programme, The Glazerite UK Group and its Stockport-based customer, Arctic Seal MCR, have supplied and installed 1000 windows for a state-of-the-art 260,000 sq. ft. business community.

As part of the refurbishment project of Universal Square, an office campus based on the Piccadilly fringe of Manchester City Centre, five new interlinked buildings were created, of which all are congregated around a courtyard, with 24-hour security, car parking facilities, a restaurant, fitness centre and more.

The old building has been completely transformed and, as well as external cladding to the complete building, 1000 VEKA M70 windows were supplied to Arctic Seal for installation. The new structurally coupled windows are finished in Anthracite to replicate aluminium in alignment with the modern, 21st century look and feel of the building. All ground floor windows are Secured By Design accredited and all glazing is grey tinted.
