London Development Project
Joinery to auditorium
The main driver and inspiration for this exciting project was the architect’s (Perkins & Will) original design concept. This was elaborate, unique & intended to push construction boundaries to new levels. Our highly skilled CNC, Auto CAD & Inventor trained draughtsmen worked around the clock to create a system which refused to compromise the buildability or beauty of this prestigious central London project. Without our Design Resource & CNC programming teams, the entire project would have been a non-starter and it was their passion which genuinely took the project to new advanced levels. It fell heavily dependent on our innovative ways to find solutions to multiple problems throughout the 18-month journey which made this job such a success.
Pushing The Boundary of CNC
Essentially, this is an elegant, contemporary, state of the art auditorium & dining room, worthy of global recognition & associated with one of the world’s most highly rated corporations. We have taken this concept & used cutting edge 3D design technology to create a breath-taking feature ceiling, complete with reverberation control & excellent acoustic properties, necessary for the intended environment. To achieve this desired effect, we took a risk & used a new material across the project-Starbank MDF. It’s safe to say that this potential risk earned its reward instantly, aiding the transformation of the design & the entire system we had in place, making it more effective than we’d ever hoped, especially during the installation process.
Each Slat Individually Designed
We believe the project would have taken double the time to complete without the standout installation process we created, this merged with the unique nature of the timber products used helped to streamline all aspects of the job, right from production stages. )
There aren’t many truly exceptional, statement making auditoriums across the country (even across the world!) & although this may seem like a niche market, it’s something that has limitless potential to grow considerably, especially when this amazing design becomes a talking point amongst industry experts. When people see the rare marriage of practicality & beauty that we have created, it will become more of a necessity as opposed to a luxury, which is when the increase for this kind of design will really soar.
Setting The Standard in Perfection
Even though the design is very bespoke to this specific project, the systems we put into place have immeasurable opportunities & could be applied to most commercial spaces. The efficient & seamless installation is what gives our work here the most potential, because it’s such an effective on-site product; above all this, it looks absolutely striking, so satisfies the client as well as the construction team, which is an extremely infrequent, positive way to complete a project of this scale. We feel this is a magnificent project for which we are all exceptionally proud of.
