Wellington House

Wellington House
The site comprised a disused car showroom built around 1998 which, along with the adjacent building, was operated by a single dealership.

Whilst the adjacent site was redeveloped as serviced office accommodation, the client also required a high specification speculative office building.

The existing showroom was demolished and Space Solutions designed a steel framed & metal clad office pavilion spanning two floors, providing an open plan office with a net letable area of 1894sq.m. (20,385sq.ft.).

A central core comprising toilets, lift and services is surrounded on three sides by office space and to the front by the entrance area.

The upper floor was designed to be clear span, allowing a column free floor plan and accommodating cellform floor beams spanning up to 18m. The cellform beams allow flexible routing of service ducts while keeping the ceiling voids to a minimum.

An impressive two storey entrance atrium is finished with a circulation gallery accessed via a custom made helical staircase, also designed by the project architect.

Externally, Ward flat panel horizontal and vertical cladding with integral Senior Aluminium Systems aluminium windows provide a clean, sharp, flush finish while semi-frameless System-17 (Longitude) curtain walling by Metal Technology add a subtle feature element to the recessed entrance atrium and the side elevations. The roof is finished in low pitch profiled cladding hidden behind a projecting parapet and bullnose fascia, a detail which is continued in the entrance vestibule.

Glazing is low-emissivity and tinted to reduce solar gain.

Concrete use is minimised to only the structural floors and external basecourse, and the remainder of the build is completed in ‘dry-trades’.

The offices are heated and cooled by a 3-pipe VRV comfort cooling system.
