Armstrong Ceiling Solutions has been able to showcase its systems at its new European headquarters - Harman House, close to its former home in the market square in Uxbridge, Middlesex. The move has enabled employees to enjoy a contemporary open-plan 9,000ft2 working environment that nevertheless comprises breakout areas, informal as well as formal meeting areas, and a stunning reception.
Designed and fitted out by Area, the new offices feature B-H 300 metal tiles on a 200m wide C-Profile grid in the reception area, MicroLook 8 metal lay-in tiles on a Prelude 15 grid in black in the breakout areas, and TechZone™ and UItima+ (the world's first Cradle to Cradle™ certified mineral tile range) in boardrooms.
The TechZone™ system incorporates building services such as lighting, ventilation and sprinklers in mineral, metal and wood tiles (mineral at Harman House). A range of compatible fixtures from partner companies have been pre-qualified for quick and easy fit and finish. The reception and breakout spaces also feature the TrioGuard™ system - a high-performance dirt-resistant coating for metal ceiling tiles. All the Armstrong systems are designed to help optimise acoustics and natural light.
Project consultant Carl Burne said: "We have used Armstrong ceilings on a huge amount of our projects and will continue to do as they are a market leader. At Harman House, the Armstrong products look great and have performed exactly as we had hoped."
