Three chapmanbdsp fit out projects shortlisted for awards
Three commercial fit out projects that chapmanbdsp helped deliver have been shortlisted for a prestigious interior design award.
The three London projects have been named as finalists in the Mixology London 2019 Awards in each of the commercial interior award categories - small, medium and large.
Mixology is one of the UK’s biggest awards for interior designers and finalists were selected by an independent judging panel consisting of architects, designers, consultants and commercial end-users.
Duncan Scott, operations director at chapmanbdsp, said: “We are really excited to have one project in each of the commercial interiors categories. This demonstrates our flexibility and approach to support our clients across a range of project sizes.”
The Brookfield Properties office in the Citypoint building has been nominated in the Small Commercial Interiors Project of the Year category.
Having undertaken the CAT A design of level 15 of the building, chapmanbdsp worked with Basha-Franklin to incorporate a hybrid design of exposed services adopting the design and areas with feature ceilings to meet the design aspirations of the client suite.
The project also involved maximising ceiling heights while also ensuring acoustic performance targets of the exposed services were met.
The 28 - 30 Hoxton Square project, which has been named as a finalist in the Medium Commercial Interiors Project of the Year category, involved redeveloping an existing building and incorporating a new building services strategy to meet the clients need for flexibility.
Working closely with TTSP, chapmanbdsp provided planning support including the energy strategy while its specialist teams provided Breeam, fire, and vertical transport solutions.
The chapmanbdsp team also adopted REVIT to undertake and coordinate the exposed services design to maximise ceiling heights within the constraints of the existing structure. The scheme includes a staff canteen and a 100-seat auditorium.
Working with Perkins & Will, chapmanbdsp undertook a due diligence and advisory role for The Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) new building in Stratford before being appointed as MEP, fire, specialist lighting and environmental consultants on the project.
The new office, which has been shortlisted in the Large Commercial Interiors Project of the Year category, accommodates 3,800 staff in an open plan arrangement and features include a fully serviced restaurant with roof terrace, a training academy, gym, multiple satellite cafes, breakout spaces and a multi-storey atrium.
As well as dedicated conference rooms, the building also includes a 250-seat ‘raked’ auditorium which has direct access from the entrance for clients and visitors.
The winners of the awards will be revealed at a black-tie ceremony next month.
