- Project: Tinsley Building
- Client: OUED
- Architect: Hawkins Brown
- Project Value: £515,000
Very specialist optic and fly labs have been designed by Hawkins/Brown to allow for electrophysiological and optical techniques to be used in examining the structure and function of the nervous system. In contrast to the clinical lab areas, a separate floor of write-up, seminar and office space was designed using natural materials and colours. The existing 1970s building was stripped back to its concrete core and majorly upgraded with a new insulated roof, wall linings and curtain walling system and new sustainably designed services, improving its energy performance by 63% and achieving BREEAM Very Good.
Our element of works included the design, supply and installation of drywall partitions, shaftwalls, wall linings, glazed partitions and doorsets, MF ceilings, Armstrong metal ceilings, firestopping, acoustic wall panels and external render systems. This project required complete air tightness room to room so particular attention to sealing up was been made, this has been thoroughly checked through the Fireclad QA process.
