Second installation

AB Glass has started work on a contract in the former Guardian Exchange building in Bristol for Kier Construction.

The three-acre site, now known as Glassfields, refers to its former use as the original glassworks site of the ‘Bristol Blue’ manufacturing company. Royal London Asset Management has refurbished the historic Broad Plain terrace, with the plan to develop the cleared site on Temple Way, to build a 200-room Jury’s Inn.

Royal London Asset Management is currently developing two of the four plots on the site: plots two and four. AB Glass previously worked on plot two, a 21,000m² office building, which has been designed to provide flexible working space. AB Glass has now been appointed to carry out the work on plot four.

The aluminium systems being used by AB Glass for the project include the Kawneer AA100 curtain wall, AA540 windows and AA540 and AA190 doors.

David Snell, operations director at Kier, said: “We are delighted to be working with AB Glass on the delivery of plot four. The standard of service is always of the highest quality, which is exactly what we require. It is very exciting to see the level development in the centre of Bristol at present, and we are pleased to be working on the delivery of two key projects for the area.”
