Shoppers at the Sainsbury's store at Longwater Retail Park in Norwich are greeted by a highly engineered bespoke structural glazed tower, entrance and canopy by HansenGroup in Thermestra, a unique rodrigging support system. The original design concept was by Chetwood Associates. For the totally flush 6 x 12m tower facades, HansenGroup used horizontal string trusses designed by WS Atkins, to withstand wind load on the three structural glazed sides.

Internally face mirrored, the tower appears as a four-sided atrium.
