End of Year 3 Update (March / April 2016) :
As we reach the end of "Year 3" we are delighted to announce that we have secured another host of prestigious and landmark projects. We have been appointed as the Curtain Walling Sub-Contractor on the DHL Hub Extension at East Midlands Airport. The 2,000m2 curtain walling project, the biggest of its kind in the East Midlands area for many years, will be completed Summer 2016. Securing this c. £1m glazed facade for one of the biggest European Principal Contractors is a testament to our qualities in design, manufacture and installation that has provided us with the requisite portfolio to secure such a high quality scheme.
We are also delighted to be responsible for the design, manufacture and installation of the "Entrance Screens" Curtain Walling & Doors on the Battersea Power Station Re-Development. The Battersea Re-Development Contract has an estimated cost of £8bn and is scheduled to be a complete transformation of the 42 acre site. A scheme where quality of installation and manufacture will be key; we are proud to be involved on this landmark project. Our portion of the Project will run through the Summer of 2016 and is scheduled to be completed at the end of the year.
We have completed the c. £500k facade on Leeds, 6 East Parade, that consisted of an innovative new design of the AluProf Awatar Feature Fin & Mullion. An architecturally stunning design that has never been done by any company before where our research and development and expertise in both design and manufacture has produced a breathtaking end product. Along with stone cladding, NBK ceramic terracotta, aluminium alucobond cassettes, parapet copings and SFS support structure, this project has demonstrated our ability to deliver all elements of a facade to an incredibly high quality. Interfaces between facade trades is an area where we find many of our customers are struggling for solutions and this project is a great example of where our ability to deliver several envelope "trades" offers the perfect solution to these issues that our customers face. Photos of this are in our Projects section of the website.

The £500k facade has taken 4 months to complete and to be involved on such a prestigious and landmark project within 24 months of trading demonstrates the calibre and level of expertise we have here at HKL.
