From last orders to early doors
For more than ten years, the Cock Inn at Mugginton, Derbyshire, stood empty. Now it has a new lease of life thanks to a £1 million restoration and extension project.
Part of the renovation was carried out by the East Midlands-based fabricator, Frame Fast UK.
Frame Fast installed its aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling in the building’s new extension. The large wide-span design of the windows and doors allows plenty of light to fill the inside and provides a perfect view for customers to enjoy the wonderful views.
Part of the Berkley Inns group, the Cock Inn’s restoration includes a newly constructed 3,500ft2 extension, which houses its new restaurant areas and kitchen.
Walking towards the new restaurant entrance, customers will notice the southerly elevation of the new building featuring an eye-catching and enormous Oak King truss, encasing and surrounded by Frame Fast’s aluminium framed glazing. Frame Fast’s Glass Shop created specialised decorative glass incorporating the Cock Inn logo for the aluminium framed doors.
“We have been delighted with all of Frame Fast’s work on the extension,” said Howard Thacker, MD of Berkeley Inns. “The spectacular glazing in the new extension provides fabulous architectural interest.”
The Cock Inn is the second pub Frame Fast has worked on with the group. It also provided the doors and windows to the new extension at the Three Horseshoes in Long Lane village, Derbyshire.
“We have recently acquired two more outlets requiring significant work, no doubt we’ll be working with Frame Fast again very soon,” Howard said.
