Hertford Street Shopping Centre Before and After Shots

Before and after shots of the rooflights at Hertford Street Shopping Centre in Coventry

Architect: Jacobs (Birmingham)

Main Contractor: Harrabin Construction

Product: Marvault + Mardome Circular

Completed:  2012


As part of Coventry City Council’s city centre makeover initiative ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games, Hertford Street Shopping Centre was transformed with a new roof which included Brett Martin’s rooflights. Coventry was one of the co-host cities and 12 Olympic football games took place at the Ricoh Stadium (renamed City of Coventry Stadium for the duration of the Games).

The existing rooflights had long served their day and were badly discoloured and ineffective at transmitting daylight into the shopping centre. Brett Martin were able to meet the tight deadline for manufacturing and installing thirteen Marvault vaulted rooflights glazed in Marlon ST multiwall polycarbonate for the shopping complex and the transformation was amazing with daylight streaming into the shopping centre. The rooflights were specified to be non-fragile and tests carried out at Brett Martin's Coventry site confirmed that the rooflights were compliant. Brett Martin’s installation team worked closely with the main contractor due to the timescale for completion of the works and were able to adapt a few of the Marvault rooflights with special galvanised end panels to suit the exisiting building and include slot vents to meet the ventilation requirements.

Mardome Circular rooflights also replaced the old circular dome rooflights on the roof.
