Alpine Fabrication has been contracted to manufacture and fit FCU covers for Britten Street project. The commercial building located in 60/61 Britten Street, Clerkenwell, London was fully refurbished for new offices. Our team made a 3D scan and completed the survey of the office space and enclosed offices to understand the work required for the project. After the survey, we analysed the data, engineered the designs of the FCU covers, and manufactured the prototype that has been sent to the client for approval.
Alpine team has manufactured two different sizes of FCU covers to accommodate the different unit sizes within the building. The FCU covers were made from one piece of sheet steel, formed with folded side channels to make the covers ridged. This was then combined with a concealed folded air intake on the front face to ensure the cover does not impact the performance of the FCU.
The FCU covers were insulated with Armaflex foam that provides market leading energy conserving properties and soundproofing. Armaflex insulation is designed to mitigate the risk of moisture accumulation and condensation that leads to mold.
The FCU covers were professionally finalised based on the colour and finish that’s been provided by the client. The covers can easily be lifted on and off the wall-mounted rails when maintenance is required.
Our sister company CDC Engineering was contracted to manufacture and install a variety of features within the building, such as the aged copper wall nook in the reception area and the copper cladding to columns. The copper features were acid aged and surface finished in our Southend based in house workshop after manufacturing the panels and before installation.
On the upper floors of the building, the Tea point stations and associated doors were manufactured from birch-faced ply. With exposed joints and polished edges, the tea stations and associated doors were machine cut in our workshop and hand-finished on site.
