Debenhams – Festival Place, Basingstoke

Main Contractor: Styles & Wood
Client: Debenhams
Location: Festival Place, Basingstoke
Project Value: £50,000
Type of Works: Shop front glazing, security shutters, glazed canopy, signage and roller shutters


System 2000 Group worked closely with the architect on this project which comprised many disciplines including roller shutters for the pedestrian car park entrances, security shutters for the Café kiosk, glazed canopy and supporting steelwork for the café signage and much more.


The glazed shopfront included glass fins and concealed steels for head restraint and stainless steel stall riser.

The glazing for the café was required to be installed concentric to the spiral staircase so that clearances matched around the 3-dimension gap. Setting out was critical from the outset and was carried out by the use of laser cut templates that keyed together to accurately space the concealed steels. The margin for error was less than 4 mm from true position to enable the glass to be purchased within lead time, all of the steel being manufactured in house.

System 2000 Group also designed and supplied the Stainless Steel Skeleton signage above the glass canopy.
