Glazing to be replaced at Barons Quay


Works to replace defective glazing at Barons Quay is due to start in July.

Balfour Beatty will begin replacing the glazing under warranty on 22 July 2024. Works are currently expected to take six weeks and are expected to be finished in September 2024.

Some existing issues such as leaks have already been resolved for tenants on a piecemeal basis but a comprehensive programme of works to replace the glazing now needs to take place.

To minimise disruption for businesses and visitors, the glazing will be replaced in the evening and overnight. Works will be carried out using cherry pickers to avoid the need for scaffolding.

An external area adjacent to the ASDA travelator hall will be fenced for the duration of the works. The fence will restrict access to the external stairs, but members of the public can still use the ramped route to access Baron Quay from Leicester Street.

Disabled parking spaces behind the Odeon cinema will be unavailable to members of the public from 19 July until the end of August. This is the only suitable area for a site compound and laying out area for replacement glazing. There is alternative disabled parking in the town centre located at Barons Quay Car Park and Central Palace Drive Car Park. We are sorry for the inconvenience that the changes to disabled parking will cause.
