Contemporary flooring from Heckmondwike was specified for this low-impact and eco-sustainable office building.
Lench’s Trust is a Birmingham based charity working with local communities to provide housing solutions that respond to the needs of older people. To construct its new head office, theproject architects utilised a modular system developed and prototyped by Green Unit – a sustainable prefabricated buildings designer – to meet the trust’s requirements.
With the expectation of a high volume of traffic from visitors, there was a need for hard wearing yet contemporary flooring to match such a distinctive development. To fulfil these performance and design characteristics, Heckmondwike flooring solutions were specified throughout the building.
Night Sky and Broadrib carpet tiles were installed throughout the building including the CEO’s office, main office and boardroom, utilising 132m2 of carpet tiles.
The office building has been constructed to be highly air-tight and is heated by an infrared heating system behind the cladding of the walls and ceiling. Both Night Sky and Broadrib carpet tiles have thermal properties that help to conserve heat, making them ideal for specification.
Designed to appear small and diminutive from the outside, the modular building interior is spacious and welcoming. The building exterior has been designed to nestle into the landscape, with the curves and green roof effectively minimising visual impact. From above, the green, curved roofs, planted with sedum, blend into the surrounding landscape and are inoffensive when viewed from neighbouring bedroom windows.
Additionally, the low roofline of the completed office building makes it hardly visible above the boundary fences of the surrounding residents.
