Brightwells Yard Glazing supplierDaylight Glazing project

The Brief

Daylight were recommended to Crest Nicholson through an existing client to assist with the design, supply and install of commercial glazing for 23 commercial units, 7 bars & restaurants, a cinema and a gym in the exciting regeneration project. A number of big-name brands have been confirmed for the shopping centre including Marks & Spencer, Reel Cinema, Joules, Pret a Manger, Cook and Seasalt. Crest Nicholson needed a glazing partner that could work along side them and oversee the design, supply and install of specialist glazing across all 30 commercial units and communal access areas.

Daylight glazing project

Daylight were asked to manage the entire glazing project and to work alongside Crest Nicholson to ensure each unit is delivered on time and to exact specification. We are also working with each of the new leaseholders to ensure the specifications and design installations meet their needs and are brand aligned.

The brief included 30 commercial shop fronts, internal shop glazing, communal access doors and curtain walling in the Cinema and the Gymnasium. 

Meeting the Client’s Vision

We are managing several partners and sub-contractors to bring the entire commercial solution together at Brightwells on behalf of Crest Nicholson. Meeting with Crest Nicholson twice a month, Daylight are delivering full technical support on this project, including everything required to achieve planning and specification approval with NHBC and Surrey Council.

Daylight are managing the entire end-to-end glazing process from initial drawings to specification design and sign-off, through to manufacturing, QC, install, finishing and installation sign-off. We are working with specialist fabricators across multiple specifications and systems, including bespoke aluminium, fire rated aluminium and steel systems, curtain walling, bespoke Timber manufacturing and PVC.

Unit Schedule

We are managing the entire schedule of commercial unit installations and working on sequential and concurrent phases, ensuring we are meeting the priorities of all stakeholders. Daylight are working with several fabrication and install partners and utilizing the most suitable systems, profiles and specifications to best meet the design brief, design suitability and required function of each unit. The systems we are using include Pyroguard, Aluprof, Metal Tech, Metal Technology, Reynaers, StrongDor and Rosenheim.
