Jack Aluminium Systems’ JD47 non-thermal shopfront system has been used by IDF Aluminium as part of an office refurbishment for shared workspace pioneers, The Office Group.
The building, in Ecclestone Square, near Victoria Station in London has been fully refurbished by The Office Group, creating a modern, commercial space that will be let to a range of diverse workforces, including creative agencies and start-up businesses.
Will Woods, Director at IDF Aluminium explains: “The client was looking to create partitioning within the building to separate the workspaces. They wanted something that gave a distinctive, retro-feel to the building so it was as much about an aesthetically-pleasing solution as a practical solution.
“We knew that Jack Aluminium’s JD47 system was the perfect choice, because we have used it previously on other office refurbishment projects, including The Office Group’s premises in Oxford Circus, and it worked really well.”
Plans were announced in 2015 to develop the Ecclestone Square site with a new build residential apartment block, but they were heavily opposed by surrounding residents who wanted to preserve their local area.
In 2015, The Office Group stepped in, taking out a 20-year lease on the building and carrying out a full refurbishment to create a modern commercial space for small businesses. The Office Group’s network includes offices in Leeds and Bristol as well as 32 sites across London, each with impressive facilities for businesses.
Ash Pearson, National Sales Manager at Jack Aluminum adds: “The team at IDF never fails to impress us with their innovative projects. This is another impressive job that really shows the versatility of our aluminium systems.”
