Case Studies



Emerald Headingley Stadium | Caddick Construction

With Ashes Cricket, ICC Cricket World Cup and Leeds Rugby Super League fixtures all coming to Headingley in 2019, Caddick Construction were especially stringent on choosing product and supplier to partner with for the new £44m stand.

The banqueting suite with curtain walling overlooking both the rugby and cricket pitches was of major importance when deciding on type of blinds and it was imperative that the blinds looked uniform from both inside and outside of the building.

Platform Leeds | Brutwood

Bruntwood purchased the iconic building, City House in Leeds, and along with DLG Architects transformed this 1960’s office space into one of Leeds’ most desired places to work.

North/South curtain walling facades posed two different glare issues.  North elevation required a fabric to maximise natural light and the South elevation required a fabric to control solar glare and heat gain.  The fabric needed to be visually the same from outside the building for aesthetics

Student Accommodation | Kier Construction Eastern & Future Generation

Kier Construction Eastern and Future Generation secured a £13.85m deal to build new student accommodation in Colchester, Essex. Hythe Mills included 223 student bedrooms and communal areas in a building of part six, seven and eight storeys. Both companies recognised that there was a demand for high quality student accommodation, enhancing the student experience. They required blinds in the bedrooms that provided light control. In the gym, an option to darken the room while withstanding heavy use was needed. Our strong working history with Kier gave us the opportunity to work with Future Generation on this flagship project.

Host Staffing, London | Ezzy Bespoke Interiors

Host Staffing, a hospitality recruitment specialist, moved into their new offices in the up and coming area of King’s Cross.

One of the main aspects of the client’s brief was to promote their new office space to passing traffic whilst maximising natural light through the large windows

The ideal product to resolve both requirements was the Linea 314 heavy duty roller blind with Lineascreen fabric printed with the Host logo

Huntcliffe School, Guisborough | Eddisons

Eddisons UK Chartered Surveyors were appointed by Huntcliff School to provide new windows for the Main Hall and Sports Hall. Existing blinds and curtains were disposed of and when the new windows had been installed there was a requirement for a solar glare solution to the hall. One of the main requirements was ensuring that only designated users could operate the blinds as and when required.

Leeds City College

Wates Construction were chosen by Leeds City College to provide their new Quarry Hill Campus and having worked directly for Leeds City College over a number of years Fresco were asked to provide their heavy duty roller blinds to the new £60m building.

Wide expanses of glazing required a robust solution to ensure that the mechanism would cope with the overall weight of the blind and also be available with wide fabrics to alleviate any requirement for unsightly seams in the blinds.
