The Charter Building

Landid Property, the company behind The Harry Potter Warner Brothers Studio in Leavsden, created The Charter Building as Uxbridge’s largest ever luxury commercial space. A monumental 324,630 sq ft of design led offices, co-working spaces, car parking and coffee shops, complete with on-site concierge for all occupiers, this refurbishment and extension was a mammoth task for everyone involved.

With 152,000 sq ft of existing space to refurbish, and an additional extension of 75,000, Planet were approached by dn-a architects with the task of designing and installing a five-story central atrium, together with some additional fire-solutions.

Our solution

With 1,000 sq ft of atria glass to install, over five floors, including a 4-meter double height reception area, Planet offered a streamlined design to ensure a stunning appearance with a time-conscious installation delivery. P20XL was used with 40dB Rw toughened laminated glass for the central atrium. This helped create the 100-metre long ‘street’ that ran along the heart of the building. dn-a created varying ceiling heights to provide pockets of space, as well as ‘pop-out-boxes’ protruding over the reception area.

FireStop E30 single-glazed partitioning screens, with FireTec doorsets and automated sliding doors were installed elsewhere in the building.
