Once regarded as the Paris of the Middle East, Beirut is finally starting to rebuild after decades of conflict. However its location in the centre of this unstable region ensures safety and threat mitigation are still of paramount importance.

Following our successful prefabrication and onsite installation of the Canadian Chancery guardhouse in Lebanon, our strict programme adherence, technical ability and professionalism did not go unrecognised. During this project we were approached by a Main Contractor to assist with design technicalities and projected budget rates for a proposed new overclad Blast Resistant external façade for the Canadian Embassy’s existing building.

The Main Contractor was successfully awarded this contract and Windell have received the prestigious opportunity to design, manufacture, deliver and install a bespoke fenestration solution valued at £1.7m. Fabrication is currently underway with site installation scheduled for October 2013, with a completion date set for January 2014
