About the Project

Number 8 First Street is the landmark multi-use building on the edge of Manchester’s busy University Quarter. Its light-responsive building façade is achieved with a custom-designed expanded metal mesh, carefully set out to form a cladding with a continuous geometric pattern and refined by a hard wearing bronze anodised surface treatment.

The mesh’s spatial texture continues to the building’s interior decorative metalwork forming the walls and ceilings to the Winter gardens and reception, where its surface is enhanced with bright gold anodised finish.

About the Project

These two striking kite structures proudly hang from tensioned wire ropes, in the North and South entrance atria at the iconic MK Shopping Centre. They are constructed from CNC laser-mitred aluminium tubular framework infilled with Locker’s expanded metal Malin mesh.

Locker undertook the computer-modelled detailed design, complex 3D mitred welding. The framework and mesh were grit-blasted and polyester powder coated Aztec gold.

The sculptures were a challenging puzzle to install however our skilled rigging team completed the work ahead of schedule over 21 continuous nights.
