Interflow have been specified to provide an innovative bespoke solution for a world-leading financial giant, who plans to create an office complex in the centre of London.
The 843,922 sq ft campus will replace the Fleet Building and Plumtree Court and the Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates designed scheme, which sits on a 4.2-acre City of London site, is targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
As a result Interflow has been asked to supply their DOYMA Curaflex 3000 sleeves and DOYMA blind gaskets, which will be joined by a series of manifold plates designed specifically for the ambitious campus development.
The selection of DOYMA products, installed by Interflow, was specified as the systems help prevent structural damage. Wherever service ducts are installed through walls, ceilings or floors, penetrating water, other liquids or humidity may cause damage to buildings, DOYMA duct sealing systems ensure professional and perfect sealing, thus presenting excellent preventative measures against structural damage.
The DOYMA Curaflex 3000 pipe sleeve are manufactured in a special fibrous cement having a coefficient of expansion which corresponds to that of concrete. They also include special grooving to the external face to ensure it homogeneously and securely connects to concrete plus the inside face of the sleeve provides an optimum contact surface for the elastomer of the Curaflex gasket insert. This will watertight bond with the concrete and is ideal for buildings without tanking membranes.
The ability of DOYMA and Interflow to work closely with designers and specifiers to create bespoke solutions for individual projects, such as the manifold plates used at the campus, was key to their being specified for this project.
The campus will provide office space suitable for occupation by financial, legal, accountancy, or other professional tenants, including “flexible densities across all floors to create high quality, flexible office space suitable for a single tenant or multiple tenancies”.
Interflow specialises in providing products and solutions designed to enhance, add value and increase sustainability across commercial and public sectors, thereby helping customers save energy and reduce their carbon footprint.
