The Chocolate Quarter, formerly Fry’s Chocolate Factory, is one of the most recognisable buildings in Keynsham, UK. It was originally built in the 1920s, and later housed Cadbury.
The building was completely renovated in 2017. New facilities, including a spa, swimming pool, cinema, restaurants, and 55 residential units, were added.
The St Monica Trust, a Bristol-based charity, invested £60m for the creation of assisted living units and care home. The vintage industrial building was converted to house 151 residents in need of assisted living or care, with a total of 90 beds. The project was managed by Andrew Wilson Partnership, and the contracted architects were KWL, based in South Wales, and AWW, based in Bristol.
Around 900 AluK aluminium windows, curtain walling units and commercial doors were supplied and installed by the AluK GB Commercial Fabricator, EYG Commercial, specialists in commercial glazing systems.
