Summit House

Built in 1925 for the Austin Reed company, and situated a few minutes from Holborn tube on the picturesque Red Lion Square, it’s a building that really stands out and gives us the opportunity to create something quite special.

Alpine Fabrication was delighted to continue working with Buckley Gray Yoeman Architects. Alpine brought their valuable experience and expertise to this unique art deco inspired 1920s building. Alpine Fabrication designed, manufactured and fitted 132 FCU covers within the building. Hot rolled mild steel black powder coated FCU covers had a variety of sizes and designs.

There were several design features that we had to take into consideration. Architects visioned some FCU covers curved with brass trim that would represent Art Deco style, and some simple square FCU for offices and board rooms.

Through coordination with the contractors’ team and the hands-on site experience of our design team, we highlighted a variety of dimensions relating to window heights and pipe clashes which were actioned and resolved before manufacture took place. We provided drawings that highlighted a number of issues that we identified when surveying the property. We were able to provide solutions to rectify these problems before any site fittings took place, thus saving the client valuable time and money. Summit House was another successful project that completed by Alpine Fabrication.
