Leading copper tubes manufacturer and distributor Lawton Tubes is investing in the second phase of a £7.5 million redevelopment at its headquarters in the West Midlands.
Coventry-based Lawton Tubes has appointed Birmingham-based Pinnegar Hayward Design (PHD) Architects to lead the design team for the £750,000 refurbishment of its 55,000 sq ft main manufacturing plant.
Alan Pinnegar, of PHD Architects, said work on the manufacturing plant, which is just across the road from the new national distribution facility, will involve over-cladding the exterior, refurbishing the external areas and entrance lobby, and improving the existing car park and yard.
“Lawton Tubes is proud of its impressive new warehouse and the company was keen for us to translate the same style and aesthetic in the refurbishment of the facility to provide a consistent corporate identify across both buildings,” said Joe White, director of PHD Architects, who is leading the project.
“This meant creating a crisp, engineered feel, reflecting the quality and precision of the products it manufactures. All architectural detailing will adopt the same aesthetic theme established in the phase one distribution facility to give a unique sense of style to perfectly showcase Lawton’s high-quality copper products.”
