Our design for the first retail concept store for Gtech is scheduled to open to the public at the end of July 2016.  As well as the display and sale of the entire product range, the store will also offer the opportunity for customers to test and try out products. This includes a purpose built cycle track where the ebike can be put through its paces.

This follows the completion of their new customer service centre and company headquarters on the same site in Worcester. In addition Glazzards have also worked closely with GTECH to design and deliver a state of the art research and development centre currently under construction.

Glazzards Shortlisted for RIBA Awards

Glazzards have been shortlisted in the RIBA 2016 awards. They are the only company to have two projects in the shortlist of eight and represent a sample of the broad range of projects undertaken by the practice.

Jonathan Hines, Chairman of the Judging Panel commented:

‘The jury was impressed by the overall standard of quality of the buildings submitted this year. The range of buildings, from residential projects to a major infrastructure scheme, was quite striking and made our job a challenging one. Congratulations to all who have been shortlisted and we look forward to announcing the winners in April.’
