Planet worked hand-in-hand with the Architect SRA and Barnwood Contractors to provide solutions to each and every need, with the eventual project increasing by 25% in value. With each changing requirement, Planet were able to offer from their range of systems a product for all scenarios.

For meeting rooms and booths, Planet's LOFT banded partitioning system in both 20mm and 100mm profiles were used, with a striking bespoke manifestation affixed to the glass. The banding and manifestation was also featured on adjoining IsoPro door sets to create a synergistic design throughout the space; furthermore, the doors were installed in both single- and double-glazed variations to match the profiles of the LOFT partitioning as required.

Planet also utilised two solutions from our dedicated RPG Fire certified fire rated systems; FireClear E30 doors; and FireTec Ei30 screens and doors, with ultra-slim toughened stainless steel framework that is perfect for a high-traffic environment such as the Bee House.

Finally, our PURE20XL screens — that extend up to 4600mm in height — were installed in the building's atrium.

    The building is multi-purpose office building, so each zone has different acoustic and fire requirements to also provide the aesthetic qualities requested by the MEPC (client) and SRA Architects.

    With the redevelopment of 140 Eastern Avenue opening its doors in May 2022, Planet were able to contribute with our available products to help in providing a building that offers exciting workplace for the future.
