Centre Point Development Decking
Architect: Rick Mather Architects & Conran and Partners
Sub-Contractor: Structural Membrane Specialists
Commissioned by Almacantar, the Centre Point development is an ambitious project to revive Centre Point’s iconic 34-storey tower. Constructed of pre-cast concrete segments in the 1960s, the 117 metre (385 ft) Grade II listed tower still dominates the West End skyline today, providing panoramic views across the city.
A collaboration between Conran + Partners, Rick Mather Architects and Multiplex Contractors, the brief was to transform the office space into 82 high-end residential apartments ranging from 80 sqm homes to a spectacular 600 sqm double-level penthouse apartment valued at £55M.
The refurbishment of this London icon is at the forefront of the current regeneration focused on Tottenham Court Road Station, which will be a major transport hub with the opening of Crossrail in 2018.
EnviroBuild provided over 200m² of Hyperion Pioneer Granite decking for the incredible penthouse apartment balcony and walkway.
The EnviroBuild technical team worked closely with SMS, Multiplex and Conran to overcome some difficult design and drainage features, ensuring the finished product was to the exacting standards of one of the capital's most exclusive properties.
