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

The Project

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┬áRockpanel which was fixed to 38mm batten making the most of the pullout strength within the face of the Durisol.
