Schueco has opened its new London showroom and office, previously in Islington, which is now in impressive new premises at 153 Great Portland Street, W1. The move has been prompted by the need to expand Schueco’s London operation and to make the Schueco product range and technical support services even more accessible to architects, main contractors, fabricators and end-users.
With a total of 3,695 sq ft of space, the new premises – which are also home to the London office of Schueco International – include a spacious showroom on the ground floor with meeting rooms and a further display area and conference facilities on the lower ground floor. The upper and lower mezzanine floors are occupied by offices.
The showroom areas contain permanent displays of Schueco façades, windows, sliding doors and entrance doors. In addition, there is a Virtual Reality facility showing examples of Schueco commercial systems and a Product Configurator that displays photo-realistic images and provides easy step-by-step configuration of Schueco sliding-door systems in a variety of domestic settings.
The new facility was officially opened on 14th June by Caroline Buckingham, Vice President (Practice and Profession) of the RIBA, Andreas Engelhardt, Managing Partner and CEO, Schueco International KG and Mike Lane, Managing Director, Schueco UK.
Opening hours are from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm, Monday to Thursday, and 8.30 am to 3.30 pm on Fridays, with a late opening one evening a week. Design and technical advice is available during opening hours and visitors are encouraged to make an appointment wherever possible.
In addition, regular monthly events at which invited expert speakers will address a wide variety of industry topics will be staged.
The full address of the new Schueco London showroom and office is 153 Great Portland Street, London W1W 6QW. The telephone remains the same as before: 020 7704 6704
