The Ivy, Manchester
Main Contractor | BAMArchitect | Sheppard Robson
Having recently completed the main construction of the new Ivy Restaurant in Manchester, which included all the glazing and feature steelwork, we were then commissioned to alter and enclose the roof terrace.
One of the main design principles for the new extension was a fully retractable glass roof. After great consideration and design work, we formed a partnership with Libart of Turkey as this is their area of expertise.
A meeting in Germany at a trade show and many phone calls and emails later, we resolved all issues and had a product that would satisfy our needs.
With a touch of a button on a remote control, the roof area will retract and provide open air dining and fabulous views.
We are in the process of installing at the moment and should deliver a fantastic product in the next few weeks.
