Overview:

The former Queens Cinema at 96-98 Bishops Bridge Road in Bayswater has now been developed in to high end residential and retail development.  Propak were appointed by McLaren to develop the specialist glazing element of the scheme as the specified product was of the highest quality, very design intensive and of a bespoke nature.  Much of the glazing required highly polished stainless steel to maintain the 1930’s Art Deco cinema feel to the building.

Propak have worked on behalf of the Developer Derwent London on previous projects including The Morelands Building, Hampstead Road, Tower House and Whitfield Street.  They are a very design lead company which demand the highest standard of finishes which lends itself well to the vast range of products and high quality that Propak have to offer.

The project required a versatile company which could manufacture in both steel and stainless steel to the very highest standard.
