Parc Prestatyn, a new development situated in the centre of the North Wales tourist resort, opened its doors to shoppers in early March 2013 and features a range of outlets including established ‘names’ Marks & Spencer, Poundland, Costa Coffee, Next, Boots, Tesco and River Island.
Arkoni manufactured and installed glazed canopies, using 21.52mm toughened and laminated glass with a PVB interlayer, on shaped steel tee arms for each of the retail units within the park which has already created over 650 jobs for the local economy.
Operating under the auspices of main contractor Marshall Construction, who started on-site the summer of 2011 and DLA Architecture of Wakefield, Arkoni installed the canopies over an eight month period between May 2012 and January 2013.
A spokesperson for DLA Architecture commented: “The canopies provide a stylish and effective complement to the architecture of the retail park and the fascia design for each unit.
“The type of canopies supplied by Arkoni help to protect and reinforce the storeholders’ brands as well as providing a welcoming entrance and protection from the elements for shoppers visiting the park.”
Mark Prentice, MD and founder of Arkoni in 1991, explained: “We’ve developed quite a reputation when it comes to adding stylish, safe and secure additions to retail destinations.
“Parc Prestatyn is a great example of what happens when innovation is delivered by all of those involved in a project and we’re delighted to have contributed to the end result,” added Mark.
