A stylish £500,000 restaurant serving high quality Pakistan and Kashmiri cuisine in Bradford uses Forma metal column casings from Encasement.
These are to conceal external structural steelwork and add a more aesthetic finish to the building’s extensive ground floor glazed facade.
Jinnah Bradford is part of the Jinnah Group, which runs nine restaurants in key towns and cities across Yorkshire, including York, Harrogate, Leeds and Selby, as well as operating United Foods, a cash and carry outlet also based in Bradford.
As the building has a large glazed facade, the Encasement column casings are designed to conceal the structural supports and provide a more integrated and attractive finish to the building’s exterior.
This theme is also carried around the building to the main entrance, which is also flanked by Encasement’s decorative casings.
To achieve this, Encasement supplied and installed eight 832 mm wide bespoke semi-circular ‘Forma’ column casings, which are manufactured from 3 mm thick aluminium and range in height from 2988 mm up to 3900 mm.
Every Forma casing is finished with a RAL 9006 metallic PPC coating, to provide an aesthetic and durable finish while enhancing weather resistance.
Designed for use on both interior and exterior applications, Encasement’s Forma casings are regularly used to conceal exterior steelwork, as their aluminium construction makes them resistant to corrosion.
Martin Taylor, Encasement’s Managing Director, commented: “Restaurants, foodservice and retail environments are areas where our column casings and wall lining solutions are widely used, as they provide a practical and versatile solution to help improve a building’s interior or exterior design while also being highly durable.
“The Jinnah restaurant project is an ideal demonstration of how column casings can be used to add the finishing touch and enhance the customer experience.”
