Bringing a Creative Sparkle and High Security to KidZania

14 Aug 2015
Case study


Glass Aftercare has provided a bespoke glazing and secure automatic entrances at KidZania, Westfield Village Mall in west London. The project, for the UK's first educational entertainment experience, demanded careful management to ensure on-time hand over for the launch of the new 75000 square feet child size city.

With proven expertise in the design, manufacture and installation of both complex customised one-off projects and large scale installations for the retail sector, Glass Aftercare's creative services and innovative approach were essential for KidZania. A new, back painted red facade has been created for the entrance area complete with brand identity and careful colour matching. New complementary black glass surrounds for the lifts have also been designed to give an overall fresh, clean and exciting welcome experience for all children. Integral to the glass facade is a new high security entrance to protect all the children visiting KidZania. 

The overall success of the project was judged not only on the quality of the final installation, but also on Glass Aftercare's willingness to work out of hours and to tight deadlines ensuring completion of the installation in good time for the KidZania grand opening.
