We recently posted news of a refurbishment project we’re about to start on in London.
Ebbark House in Borough High Street is being transformed into prestigious office space.
Our role is the supply and installation of an internal screen over two floors and several fire doors, some automated.
Our refurbishment experience covers all sectors. We’ve also been involved in a large number of projects internationally.
For example, we recently supplied fire rated curtain walling for the redevelopment of the Nigerian Stock Exchange in Lagos.
It’s a contract that wasn’t awarded lightly, with the Stock Exchange being Nigeria’s most important financial centre.
Wrightstyle was chosen because of our proven systems ranges, and international experience. We were also appointedd because of our ability to meet tight delivery timetables.
Often, refurbishment means retaining the exterior architecture of a building, while rebuilding the interior for 21st century use.
That was the case for a prestigious mixed-use development in Wigmore Street, central London.
The project consisted of four buildings, where only the facades were retained.
The interiors were demolished and reconstructed to form basement and ground floor retail space. Above are eight luxurious apartments.
We supplied no fewer than 39 advanced window systems, designed for heat and sound insulation.
They also had to accommodate high-specification triple-glazed fire-resistant glass.
Another refurbishment project we’ve also recently worked on, was for internal glazing on the major redevelopment of an Edwardian warehouse.
And provided slim-line heritage thermally broken windows for a project in Baker Street.
It’s the ability of our systems to seamlessly blend in alongside non-fire rated systems that can be an important element to the contract.
For example, it was a requirement in a recent contract in the heart of the capital’s West End theatre land.
We supplied some 280m2 of our SR60 system, for over 95 different frame assembles, comprising fire rating specifications of either EI60 or E60.
The contract was complicated by having large radius heads on the ground floor arches.
And, of course, our advanced systems had to perfectly match with other non-rated aluminium areas.
We like to think we have unrivalled experience in designing and fabricating products that can bring new life to old buildings.
It’s certainly something that we’ve been trusted to do, from the UK to Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong, and beyond.
