Year in Review – Planet Partitioning Midlands, 2015
With a move to their new offices in Tamworth at the start of the year, Planet Midlands have been enjoying their new location during 2015. The proximity to the A5 and M42 has meant a slew of local projects for the Midlands team, including the securement of the Euro Car Parts Head Office in Tamworth with UMC Architects.
The Midlands team completed several major projects with Aston University in Birmingham over the summer, working under Overbury on fit-outs across the campus and installing p20 and p100 double glazed partitioning as well as Firerated doorsets.
The Midlands offices largest securement this year was the refurbishment of the Biosciences Building for Glaxo Smith Kline in Stevenage. Having worked with GSK for many years Planet Midlands were then specified by the architects, The Austin Company. Working under Kier Construction Planet supplied and installed a range of products throughout the office, including p100 double glazed for the meeting rooms and both double and single glazed Fireclear for general office partitioning. Doors were also supplied and installed throughout.
Other notable projects from the Midlands this year include working on the High Speed Railway 2 office and the re-fitting of John Lewis in Milton Keynes.
