A LEADING architectural glazing firm based in Suffolk has secured a town centre regeneration deal worth £5million.

English Architectural Glazing, of Mildenhall, has been contracted by Multiplex Constructions - the company building the new Wembley Stadium - to provide the curtain walling, glazing and cladding as part of a scheme to regenerate High Wycombe town centre, in Buckinghamshire.

EAG, which changed hands in a management buy-out earlier this year, will start work on site next April and will be working on the town's new bus station as well as a new Marks & Spencer store, installing curtain walling, canopies, windows and automatic doors.

Edward Whipp, EAG's pre construction director, said: “This is the biggest deal we have done post-MBO and we are very pleased to have bagged such a large and prestigious contract which also demonstrates the positive light in which our business is viewed by our clients.

“The initial work load will be heavy as the project requires work to be undertaken on many areas simultaneously, with the new bus station being the first area to be handed over in July of next year.

“We are confident that our detailed design, planning and early manufacture will ensure the project is a success for us and will demonstrate that we are capable of competing for very large scale projects.”
