Holland & Barrett is Europe’s leading retailer of vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements and have recently expanded their existing Market Street store in Manchester to become the largest such store in Europe.
H&B’s new store format offers a wider range of products and customer interaction stands. Inside the new ‘More Store’, discerning ethical shoppers are even able to make their own natural body scrub from scratch using raw sugar or Himalayan salts to ensure everything in the pot is from a sound source.
Armstrong Priestley won the contract to design and install the sprinkler protection to the new 3 storey retail unit which is part of the Arndale centre. The system was designed to BS EN 12845 with Ordinary Hazard Group 3 category. The new expansion combined the original smaller H&B store and a second existing unit requiring both false ceiling and void protection, which was covered by over 270 sprinkler heads across all three floors.
The Sprinkler system was designed and installed on time ready for the new flagship store to open its doors for beauty and health enthusiasts to explore.
