The building, designed by award winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, will create 32,000 sq. ft. of new flagship retail space over 3 floors along with 80,000 sq. ft. of new grade A office space. Regent Street W5 building also includes the regeneration of two listed buildings on New Burlington Street for a mix of mixed-use. Installation consisted of the following:
The Closed Cavity Façade is a double skin façade where the cavity between the inner and the outer skin is completely sealed. Dry and clean air is constantly fed into the façade cavity in order to prevent the formation of condensation on the glazing. Outside conditions are constantly monitored electronically and the quantity of dry air is adjusted accordingly. As a result, energy consumption is reduced to a minimum. This is the first project where Josef Gartner designed and fabricated CCF façade system for UK market and Cornelius has successfully installed this type of façade first time in the UK.
Type C Ground Floor retail stick system façade consisted from aluminium mullions, transoms, soffit panels, glass panels and doors.
Type D Ground Floor internal courtyard, stick system façade consisted from steel mullions and transoms with structurally bonded carrier frame double glazed glass units and sliding doors.
