Angled frameless glass officesThe Design Brief

We carried out a wide-range of works to carry out this project including;

  • Strip out and safe disposal of existing partitions.
  • New partitioning, manifestation and suspended ceilings.
  • Flooring, decoration works and window blinds.
  • Electrical and plumbing works.

The Challenges and Solutions

During the initial stages of this Office Fit Out Huddersfield project we faced a number of challenges to overcome. The first being the preliminary works, which included the removal and disposal of the redundant materials. Due to the existing materials being mostly plaster and timber, the partitioning needed to be broken rather than just stripped out.  This in itself posted Health and Safety risks and concerns, we had to ensure the men on site were full briefed each day and that the redundant materials were disposed off safely, minimising Health and Safety Risks.

Flexible style of working

Throughout the primary stage of this project in Huddersfield, we adapted the initial design to suit the needs of the client. We originally designed the project to feature frameless glazed offices in a long run. Making the project unique and specialised we re-designed the offices to be built on angle with frameless glass panels staggered down the space.

We re-developed the existing walls to ensure a smooth finish by lining them, these were finished in a tape and fill style. The existing windows were then finihsed off with new window boards.

To create these specialised offices we fitted single glazed frameless glass panels in a staggered effect down the length of the office space. The glazed panels were floor to ceiling height and were fitted with dry joints, for a smooth and fluid finish. To complete the glazing we fitted 2 rows of 50mm manifestation dots in Opal Frost to comply with DDA requirements. The manifestation detail continued to which we fitted the company logo also in Opal Frost to match.

A selection of the offices were fitted  solid dividing walls , with 77mm Silver framework. These solid walls were finished in a tape, fill and paint finish to match the external walls.
