Birmingham Mailbox Portal Beams in GRP

Main Contractor: Galliford Try Construction
Architect: Stanton Williams
Project Duration: 12 months
Roof Cladding
Wall & Ceiling Cladding

Project Information:
Design & Display Structures were appointed by main contractor Galliford Try Construction Central to design, manufacture and install 94 portal frames as part of a massive £50m refurbishment scheme.

These modular GRP sections were manufactured as fully finished components to simulate Armoucoat (polished plaster), all ready for the fast track installation phase.

Each portal set (x94) comprised:
• 11.3m long horizonal beams
• Pair of vertical supporting uprights 5.3m tall

Lifted to high level under the new atrium roof these portal frames form a significant feature in the central walkway providing larger public areas in addition to the improvements to the surrounding infrastructure.

The plans were designed by Stirling Prize winning architects Stanton Williams. The entire retail mall will be enclosed and sky lit, to create an urban room with new facades, finishes and store frontages.
