Project Brief

JR were asked to consult on the design within several key areas for the newly acquired Bold Street, Liverpool site. Having established a good working relationship with the brand on previous Albert's Schloss sites, we were able to work closely with the client to meet all their expectations confidently and within timescales.

The venue has a stunning partial traditional stained glass atrium, encompassing nine glazed roof sections, covering a whopping 100m2 of space! This required dynamic coverage to control both solar light glare and solar heat gain to provide comfort within the internal space of the venue. The JR SK101: Eliminate Skylight 120 fabric tension system was specified, using Somfy automation control, to enable the operator easy individual or grouped control dependent on the requirement for th eindoor space. These systems also had to promote the iconic bespoke blue and white striped brand.

In addition to the skylight blinds, the requirement of 4 x JR CW101: fixed French Awning Canopies was essential for the facade of the building, replicating the other sites within their portfolio, whilst retaining the distinct blue and white brand. In addition to the brand recognition, whilst complementing the building's traditional facade, the canopy systems act as coverage for client coverage.

Lastley, within the rear garden of the venue, a JR A101: Panther (Modulbox 400) outdoor retractable folding-arm awning system was specified, to cover a 40m2 area of space, to faciliate both smoking clientele and people wishing dine / drink outside, whilst being protected from both sun and rain conditions.


Technical survey took place over a two day period. Scissor lift systems were required to gain access for the partial traditional stained glass atrium, whilst also working around other sub-contractors on site. Careful consideration had to be applied due to the heritage of the attrium, whilst maintaining the clean look and lines of the glass, without compromising the secure fixing points and design integration of the nine skylight blinds. Collaborating with the site electricians to enable power points for each blind to operate, CAD drawings were then produced for the design and technical sign-off by our team, to enable the project to proceed into the manufacture schedules. These processes were followed with both the canopy and awning requirements.


Installation was schedule over a five day period. Scissor lift systems were also used for installation and testing of all product. Due to multiple on-site sub-contractors, and with opening day deadline looming, installation is always a challange! However, working and collaborating with both the client and variety of the other contractors on site, we achieved the installation, testing and sign-off all bespoke systems, whilst meeting the client expectation.


A fabulous project and brand to be associated with, James Robertshaw were very happy with the end result, to meet both the client expectation and complete another prestigious project for Mission Mars.

The project looks amazing - the James Robertshaw team produced great work, thank you!
