Copper Projects were appointed by Vastint UK to complete shell & core works and deliver a CAT A finish for 1 Dane's Yard, a five-storey commercial office on the Sugar House Island development in Bow.

As the landlord's first UK property available to let, it was essential to develop an attractive space ready to compete in the London office rental market.  

Exposed floor plates, large windows and high ceilings preserve the look and feel of a once industrial area. The building frame is made from cross-laminated timber (CLT), which has many benefits including the effective weight-to-strength ratio, low carbon footprint and excellent thermal efficiency.  

Raised accessible floor panels provide future tenants with the flexibility needed to set up their infrastructure with ease. Ceiling-mounted Mitsubishi fan coil units regulate all floors with zonal controlling, and Dyson air blades operate in the bathrooms. Other features include suspended DALI controlled light fittings, floor and wall tiling to WCs and lobbies and roller blinds to the perimeter windows.  

Once the specification was confirmed, the installation was completed within ten weeks allowing the landlord to open the space to prospective tenants for viewings. The quality and speed we finished this project meant we were appointed to work on a further six buildings within the development.
