Creative use of Vtec’s MaxiBeams in London’s EC2 area

Creative use of Vtec’s MaxiBeams in London’s EC2 area

This was a superb example of creativity using Vtec’s lightweight MaxiBeams, which enabled dramatic design features and ceilings to be achieved with ease due to the adaptability of the system, which was designed and 3D modelled to ensure a perfect end result.

This premium office redevelopment in London’s prime EC2 area warranted an especially exciting and dynamic design. Vtec was specified to provide MaxiBeam for the ceilings and a WaveBlade feature in several areas including reception, circulation and social areas.

The MaxiBeam system was produced in beams 140 mm deep, complemented in a social area by design-friendly WaveBlades to create a stunning feature with individual elements up to 600mm deep. Both systems were manufactured in 40mm thickness and finished in Supalami Cool Oak.

The MaxiBeam system was selected because of its flexibility which enabled it to meet the complex demands of the project. These included integration of services, perfect interfacing with the angled and shaped bulkheads and walls resulting from the flowing floor plan, plus the additional technical challenge of integrating seamlessly with the dynamic yet graceful WaveBlade ceiling feature.

This required gradual changes to the size of the WaveBlade which undulated across the ceiling from a frontal aspect, and in the transverse direction the arrangement segued seamlessly from the MaxiBeam ceiling into the dynamic WaveBlades which in turn finally flowed gracefully down the wall of the social area.

Vtec’s Technical Team designed the feature to achieve the dynamic visual intent, 3D modelling was used to ensure a smooth transition across it’s changing landscape to ensure that the beautifully crafted end result was hugely pleasing to the eye from any angle.

Vtec Maxibeam and WaveBlade are lightweight feature beam systems that are part of Vtec’s Slats Beams and Acoustics Range. They offer strong visual impact ideal for imaginative features that will add huge interest to your Walls and Ceiling without expensive and complex structures.
