Commercial office space
New commercial call centre
Contractor: ELM Contracts (Contracting) Ltd
Architect: Paul Robinson Partnership PRP
Location: Gorleston near Great Yarmouth
Project: Commercial office space
This project was to create an energy-efficient commercial office space for use as a call centre. It was the second time of building with Durisol ICF for the contractor, Elm Contracts (Contracting) Ltd.
Durisol D300 PIR was placed directly onto a raft foundation. Free-standing steel was used within the Durisol frame, at the client’s request, to carry mezzanine floors and create hidden space within the building for storage and cabling. The building was clad in 8mm Rockpanel which was fixed to 38mm batten making the most of the pullout strength within the face of the Durisol.
The finished result is a highly thermal and fire-resistant build that also looks aesthetically pleasing.
