The project comprised the design and build construction of a 3 storey office extension and link building. The construction of the building was based on a steel frame, with cladding to the facades and pre-cast concrete floor planks. The building’s main features were; the full height planar glazing to the reception areas, the colourful Kreate cladding panels, that engulfed the building and the stylish curved glazing link building.
Inside the building the main features were; the full height timber paneling, a secret door to reception, a curved glazed link meeting suites on the 1st floor and a fantastic new canteen/kitchen on the ground floor link, which is a mixture of colours finishes and exposed services.
Ashe also formed a 1200m2 new block paved car park, which due to the permeable construction methods, meant that there was no requirement for drainage/soakaways.
The building also included a number of energy saving features such as PV panels on the roof and a new rainwater harvesting system, which served the new toilets.
There have been numerous comments on how tidy and well-kept the site was. Ashe were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
