We are pleased to announce AB Glass has secured a substantial contract to manufacture and install windows, doors, and curtain walling at a new student accommodation in Cardiff.
Windsor House, Cardiff, is a 314 bedroom scheme, seven story structure that will replace the old Windsor House office block. Built to a high specification, the student accommodation will contain studios and twodios – self-contained rooms where two students will share kitchen facilities.
On the ground floor, students will also have access to a cinema, gym, games room, and a private student lounge. The main contractor for the building is ISG. The value of the contract to AB Glass is approximately £600,000.
There will be several architectural finishes to the façade of the building, including brickwork, glass curtain walling, cladding panels, and reconstituted stone. There will be an area for students living in the building to store bicycles in a secure area, and a landscaped courtyard. The build is due to be completed in summer 2016.
Nigel Harvey, Operations Director at AB Glass, said:
“I would like to thank ISG for appointing AB Glass as a sub-contractor on this building. This is a prestigious project that will add greatly to the university’s offering to Wales’s capital city. We look forward to putting our stamp on what will be a fantastic building when it is finished.”
