Oasis Restaurant

Oasis Restaurant needed to increase their seating capacity and create a meeting room within their existing premises. They felt additional space could be released by removing an existing wall, but this presented a number of health and safety challenges and also compromised the look and feel of the seating area.

Zig Zag Hair and Beauty

Zig Zag Hair and Beauty had a fire escape that failed to comply with building regulations, so they appointed G & D to engineer and build a new one.

Following a site survey, G & D designed and provided drawings for a suitable and compliant replacement fire escape. We fully managed the design and site installation, ensuring the business remained open throughout and customers experienced minimal disruption.

The client was totally satisfied with the process and the outcome.

Martin and Elaine Hayes

Martin and Elaine Hayes plans for their contemporary home renovation incorporated an ultra-modern staircase as a statement feature.

G&D were commissioned to bring the architect‘s vision to life. We conducted a comprehensive site survey and offered advice on all the possibilities and options. After extensive collaboration, we created a glass and timber staircase together with glass balustrading for the gallery landing, providing a stunning centrepiece for their home.

G & D engineered the concept, providing working drawings, manufacture and installation. Martin and Elaine were over the moon with the result.

Primark Woodgreen

Primark Woodgreen was being refitted through Simpsons of York. The architects’ drawings incorporated a glass wall around the escalator atrium and balustrading to the first floor.

G & D tendered and won the project. It entailed G & D working closely as part of a wider team of contractors to tightly predefined schedules and drawings on commercial premises.

Working from the existing drawings, G & D brought this concept to fruition using our seamless glass system without any visual steel rails or posts, It gives the ultimate optical effect. The balustrading was designed to perfectly compliment the architects concept.
