Scalpel Building, London
Speciality reinsurance group Chaucer’s move into their new 44,000 sq ft home in London’s Scalpel Building aimed to provide a new, modern, and eco-friendly environment for their people.
The increased emphasis on collaborative and social spaces for their 450 employees, with key considerations towards flexibility and sustainability, saw Radii ideally placed to provide a key contribution to the fit-out.
Radii’s fully demountable Linear 30 single glazed (40dB Rw) and Parallel 100 double glazed (50dB Rw) systems were utilised for office fronts and meeting rooms depending on the acoustic performance that was required. Lateral deflection at external mullion abutments was also a feature, while affixed mullions and transoms were used to create a banded effect.
Hogan fully framed glazed pivoting doors, with a unique acoustic threshold door seal design, achieved acoustic attenuation of 39dB Rw to a number of the meeting rooms.
Radii’s technical design department also created a bespoke telescopic double-stacking sliding door for the collaborative space known as the ‘scrum room’.
Bi-parting sliding automatic doors were installed in the lift lobby, with access control via carder readers mounted on Radii’s integral security post. The auto-operators were hidden within a purpose-built bulkhead which was designed and co-ordinated with the ceiling contractor, ensuring day two access for any re-programming and maintenance.
Where needed, our in-house designed and manufactured, fully certified, steel-clad FirePro Ei30 fire rated glazed partitions were installed by Radii.
Various designs of privacy film manifestations were placed between the partition banding, with some patterned manifestations complementing the Chinese architectural design motifs throughout the space.
