All Bars One’s latest chain in Birmingham airport has called on Smith of Derby clockmakers for the manufacture and installation of an interior timepiece.
All Bar One is branded under Mitchells & Butlers, the largest operator of restaurants, pubs and bars in the UK. All Bar One has been running stylish city bars in central locations since 1994, but the recent chain in the Birmingham airport is part of Mitchells & Butlers new initiative to capitalise on the potential of high-football transport hubs. With the completed installation, Smith of Derby hopes that not only football fans, but the everyday traveller stopping in will easily know the time at All Bars One.
For the project, Smith of Derby collaborated directly with Design Coalition and the main contractor for the project was Sanderson Ltd. The original clock design included a glass panel on which the clock was mounted but this proved to be impractical with the client so the interior clock was mounted on a solid wall. The clock is controlled by one of Smith of Derby’s Permanent Inverter charger systems which will insure accurate time keeping with low maintenance.
Smith of Derby clockmakers believe in the ‘expression of time’ and the importance of its preservation, especially in areas of transport where time is of the essence.
