Clifton Moor Shopping Centre, York

Secret Rainwater System & Curved Soffit Planking

Clifton Moor is a busy shopping centre situated in the heart of York and is home to a wide variety of well-known retail brands. For this challenging refurbishment project, JWD were required to replace the existing gutter, pipework and soffit detailing with a more contemporary design, all whilst the shopping centre remained open for business.

JWD designed and installed a secret gutter and pipe system which provided a descreet but highly effective rainwater solution. The previous exposed rainwater pipes were removed and the replacement system was neatly placed within the recesses of the brick pillars.

An aesthetically pleasing curved soffit plank system was then designed and attached to hidden support bracketry. This system was specially manufactured to be fully removable, making it easily accessible for any future maintenance that might be required.

Although this project was very challenging from a design, manufacture and installation perspective, the JWD Team exceeded all expectations and the client, Simpsons of York, was extremely pleased with the results.
