Key details

Project Scope: Remodelling of Hatfields Home Furnishers Showroom, Colchester
Client: Hatfields Home Furnishers
Architect: Stanley Bragg
Contractor: Cadman Construction

Key features

  • Modernisation and refurbishment of Hatfields showroom in Stanway, Colchester
  • New 5.5m high x 8m long 'aerofoil' entrance canopy supported on raking steel columns
  • The design utilises a fixed base to the columns and truss action of steel skeleton to provide stability to the canopy
  • Careful analysis of the wind loading was undertaken to ensure the canopy remains stable
  • New glazed display area was designed to have a removable first floor to allow large items to be displayed (potential for a very large Christmas tree!)
  • Superstructures also provided temporary works design services to the main contractor to facilitate the creation of large openings within the existing building
