The Daimler Building

The Daimler Building

The Daimler Building has a long-standing reputation as a centre of excellence from the manufacture of the first bicycle, the location of the first car factory in Britain to the creators of the first fork lift and as a specialist factory for high-performance engines powering four F1 World Champions.
The building has been completely transformed into a dedicated arts & culture hub, firmly embracing Coventry’s City of Culture. Owned & developed by Wrigley Group and now entrusted to long term tenants Imagineer UK.

Stairways brief was to manufacturer performance door sets to a bespoke specification.
Featuring hardwood frames, vision panels, and factory finished Grey doors, complimented by our Architecturally specified Ironmongery service.

The project was fitting for a Royal visit, Prince Charles, as part of the City’s cultural tour made recently.
