Re-Energising The Heart of an Historic City

19 July, 2023

Chester Northgate is the new development of streets, parades and amenities and is an innovative approach to city-centre design. One that slots seamlessly into the existing architecture of the historic city of Chester.

Kawneer is proud to have provided market-leading solutions for the £72 million build. With a six-screen cinema, indoor market, bars, restaurants, cafés, office spaces as well as a multi-storey car park, Northgate will revitalise the city centre and create a potential of 300 jobs.

Designed by AHR, built by Vinci Construction and installed by our approved specialist subcontractor APiC UK Ltd, Kawneer supplied its fully integrated tried and tested AA®100 and AA®110 Curtain Wall Systems, AA®190 TB Doors and AA®720 Windows to aid the redevelopment of the project.

Kawneer’s energy-efficient, and aesthetically pleasing products ensured that the performance of Northgate matches its striking appearance. A use of terracotta on the project subtly references at Chester’s Roman past.

Kawneer’s solutions enabled Northgate to optimise its thermal performance and aesthetic appeal, enhancing its efficiency and safety.

The curved head screens that follow Northgate Street into Hunters Walk exemplify the Kawneer approach to project and bespoke design whilst building legacies: a development focused on the future, while retaining the best of the past with well-considered design and exceptional quality.
