*York Train Station Refurbishment*
York is one of the most important railway stations on the British railway network because of its role as a key railway junction approximately halfway between London, the capital of England, and Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. The junction was historically a major site for rolling stock manufacture, maintenance and repair. The waiting rooms were recently refurbished and we supplied and manufactured all the glass for the job. The waiting rooms won an award for its design.
*Birmingham New Street*
Birmingham New Street is the largest and busiest of the three main railway stations serving Birmingham, England. It is in the city centre and is a central hub of the British railway system. We have supplied some large pieces of glass in short lead time for the opening.
*Boodles Jewellery Store- London*
Boodles is a privately held British luxury jeweller and jewellery designer founded in 1798. A family company from Liverpool, it also has stores in Chester, Dublin, London, and Manchester. Their flagship store is found on New Bond Street, London, which is where we supplied glass for there refurbishment. The result was amazing.
*The Packhorse shopping centre- Huddersfield*
The Pack Horse Centre is a covered pedestrianised shopping area and was constructed over a cobblestone street, Pack Horse Yard, renamed Pack Horse Walk. Pack horses carried merchandise over pack-horse routes across the Pennines before turnpike roads and railways improved transportation was used. Its now a busy shopping centre that we have supplied the glass for the refurbishment which is now open.
