Imperial College London
Internal doors, joinery and panelling
Download Case Study
The second phase of the refurbishment of a 10-storey building at Imperial College spread across 53 weeks. It saw us working with Kier fitting out lecture theatres, reception areas, kitchens, toilet cubicles, skirting, architrave, windowboards and, of course, doors. One unusual aspect of this job was our construction of a bespoke metal case to house a 150-year-old clock.
Imperial College threw up many challenges. We had to overcome the logistical issues of getting the necessary number of doors to the correct floors using only two lifts. Our lecture-theatre fitouts featured both oak ribbed acoustic panelling and white 12mm acoustic panelling. This had to be made off site then carefully installed. We also revitalised parquet flooring, bringing it back to life with highly involved varnishing.
