Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems; with their approved fabricator PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd completed a new build for Tesco in Castle Acre Road, Swaffham, Norfolk.  The store was opened ahead of schedule by the local mayor and will create around 150 new jobs. This new build supermarket had the full support of the local community who campaigned for its opening.

Comar 6EFT stick build curtain walling was specified for this project. Comar 6EFT provides a capped curtain walling solution and offers architects the opportunity to maximise large glazed areas as it has the slimmest sightlines available making it the perfect choice for the glazed facade of this Tesco store.

For the opening vents, Comar 5P.i ECO casement windows were specified. Polyamide Insulated (P.i) window and door systems provide exceptional thermal performance in a market where energy efficient designs and meeting the demands of the latest building regulations are paramount.

In an extremely busy retail environment such as a supermarket, Comar 7P.i Commercial Doors are a natural choice. Not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding/folding, they have been designed specifically for retail applications where high traffic solutions are required.

Comar 9P.i rebated swing doors were fitted to the stores other access areas. The Comar 7P.i CD auto sliding doors are required to comply with the Disability & Equality Act 2010 and were installed with a low-rise threshold to the main customer entrances.

All Comar approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing. PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
