Project Brief

Originally the site at Uppermill was an old and disused toilet block. Rick Scholes and his team had the vision and foresight to convert this local, famous eyesore into a cool, contemporary and vibrant hospitality space, serving their luxury ice cream and coffees to the locality. Situated within the picturesque King George V Playing fields, Rick required to find a company that could make his dreams happen…


James Robertshaw were instructed to design, manufacture, install and project manage an all-weather retractable roof solution, with automated retractable double glazed balustrade glass systems, in addition to fixed glass curtain walling and glazed access doors. As well as this 65m2 building extension, the client also required a retractable awning to cover the service kiosk for customers not wanting to sit within the bistro area. Management of time was scheduled and the JR technical surveyor and project manager, arranged to meet both the client and building contractor on site, to discuss and agree the project and preparation. The site time lasted a day, detail was agreed and we then produced all the technical CAD and visualisation concepts for the client to agree and sign off. The project moved into manufacture…


Upon sign-off of the CAD drawings by the client, the project was processed and released into manufacture within our Greater Manchester operation. All products within the project were scheduled, processed and made within a six week period. Dates were agreed and our installation process began! Working collaboratively with other trades on site, the JR installation team installed and commissioned the project within a week's timescale.


George V Playing Fields in Uppermill is now home to another outlet for Diggle-based Grandpa Greene’s Luxury Ice Cream. Happy client and a happy community. Who doesn't like ice cream..?

The thing that most impressed me about working with James Robertshaw was the quality of the work. Plus, all throughout the project we were getting consistant communication and updates, and that resulted in so much confidence.
