Last month, Armafix helped out with the fixtures and fittings on brand new shopping centre, Leeds Trinity.
The 1 million sq ft centre was developed using pre-existing buildings, which previously formed the Leeds Bond Centre, integrated with brand new structures including a sweeping glass dome roof. Whilst it makes for a stunning finish, at Armafix we understand that mixing old and new can cause complications in the engineering of a building. And that’s where we came in. The various ceilings incorporated in the building required different decking fixings in order to achieve the right finish, and our clients working on the site were unsure which fixings were required.
Armafix have an extensive knowledge on lindapter fixings, and we are able to assess which is best for the job. For the new buildings, we could advise simply by getting the name of the manufacturer, but for the older parts it was a little more tricky. We sent members of our expert team down to the site in person to examine the area and recommend which lindapter fixings would do the job. By advising on the process and supplying the materials required, we were able to ensure everything went smoothly in the important final stages of the development.
The shopping centre opened to crowds of thousands in late May. It is the first major shopping centre to open in Western Europe this year, providing a source of positive inspiration in the face of the financial insecurities of recent years. It hosts a wide range of shops, bars, restaurants, cafés and even a cinema complex.
Where possible, we are happy to visit our clients in person on site to provide expert advice and ensure that we are supplying the correct materials for the job in hand, even if you’re dealing with old buildings or rare manufacturers. If it’s not possible to visit you in person, we’ll do the next best thing send sample packs out with one of each type of fixing for you to test, to ensure that you don’t end up forking out for the wrong product.
