ClientWillmott Dixon and ISG
The vast regeneration project undertaken to redesign and rebuild Central Square in Cardiff City Centre has led to multiple contract wins for Dudley’s Aluminium.
One Central Square
One Central Square is an eight-storey Grade A office building, offering businesses modern office accommodation in the heart of Cardiff City Centre with excellent transport connections. The catalyst building for the regeneration, One Central Square has a BREEAM excellent rating and won the UK’s Best Commercial Property Scheme category at the prestigious RICS Awards in 2017.
Main contractor Willmott Dixon called upon Dudley’s Aluminium to apply their expertise of curtain walling and glazing to the project. Kawneer AA100 standard capped and structurally silicone glazed curtain walling was installed by Dudley’s Aluminium alongside manual doors and automatic doors.
Two Central Square
Continuing the development of Central Square by Rightacres, main contractor ISG Ltd were brought in to deliver 150,000 square feet of office space at Two Central Square. The building now provides a modern office space for legal firm Hugh James and also houses Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.
We installed a series of products on the build to create an engaging and exciting space to work and study in. In addition to structural silicone glazed curtain walling, we set Kawneer AA110 capped curtain walling and incorporated 200mm projecting mullion and transom face caps.
High performance solar control glazing and louvres were put into place alongside Kawneer Series 190 thermally broken commercial doors, Boon Edam Circle slide doors and Tourniket automatic revolving door entrance systems.
