Planet Partitioning Start on Site at AHMM’s White Collar Factory
Planet Partitioning are now on site at AHMM’s £76 million project for Derwent London Plc, in London’s Tech Hub, Old Street. The White Collar Factory is the jewel in the crown in a series of new buildings and renovations which the architect is creating for British based property, investment and development business. The 16-storey tower is a naturally vented ‘spec-office’ with a focus of smart servicing, flexibility and adaption to future use and likely future climate. The buildings themselves will be a mixture of residential and commercial spaces, aiming to ‘offer a mix of living and incubator working spaces to make a new place in the city’. Silicon Valley, as the Old Street Roundabout, is the epicentre for start-ups and tech companies in the country. AHMM met the challenge of building here by creating an equally modern and technically advanced space.
Featuring long spans, flexible floor plates, operable windows, generous volumes and robust construction, the tower represents a new type of office building that takes its cue from the multi-level factory technology.
Working under the Main Contractor on-site, Contrakt Ltd, Planet have installed its acoustically strong p100DG partitioning system, along with SonoTec doorsets. Bespoke single glazed partitioning was additionally used to create 2 new entrances for split tenancy floors.
