THE SCENARIO: 200 Hammersmith Road is 38,000 sq ft
of office space comprising 5,800 sq ft roof terrace, atrium
lounge and break out areas.
THE SCOPE: The architect approached us to explain
their vision and design. They briefed us on the concept of
the rope theme running throughout the build. We were
commissioned to manufacture black Jesmonite AC730
panels with a rope pattern installed onto a framework hook
and rail system.
OUR SOLUTION: To meet the design requirements we had
to come up with a methodology which would allow us to
replicate the look of the rope to feature in the Jesmonite
wall panels. We achieved this finish by manufacturing a
fibreglass model using a zinc profile to achieve the dome
inserts. We then laid ropes into the dome inserts and
stabilised the model. Once we were happy with the model
we then produced a rubber mould. From this rubber mould
we cast the Jesmonite panels.
The colour required was a bespoke colour which we
had to make up ourselves and seek approval prior to
manufacturing. It is an extremley important process
to ensure the same quantities of each colour type were
used from the same batches in order to achieve colour
consistency throughout the manufacturing process. A
scrict quality control process was implemented during this
project and the client was extremely pleased with the end
result. Click here to download a copy of this case study.
