MEET COPPER PROJECTS
We asked Lee and John from Copper Projects , our offices fit-out contractor, to tell us about the progress they’re making with the first two buildings at Dane’s Yard, and the services they will be offering future office tenants.
Lee: We were initially appointed to carry out the internal fit-out of 1 Dane’s Yard and 1 Sugar House Lane, and since then our remit has extended to include the wall and floor tiling in the entrance and common areas, as well as decoration works.
John: It’s been really exciting to see progress on 1 Dane’s Yard. Adding in the new raised floors has had a huge impact on the feel of the space. It’s lovely to see how the sunlight bounces off the floors, illuminating the timber soffit in this Cross Laminated Timber building. The space is now really starting to feel like an office rather than a building under construction. The bathrooms are being tiled and the finishes are being applied through the whole building. The windowsills are being installed at the moment and the blinds have been delivered ready to be fitted to the windows. The walls have already been prepared and decorated ready for the final coat which will be carried at the very last moment. The pipework under the floor is now complete ready to accept the new perimeter radiators and we’re looking forward to getting the power into the building so we can test the new light fittings. The building is a hive of activity as the finishing trades work their way down ready for final testing and commissioning.
Lee: The progression of the building envelope of 1 Sugar House Lane means we have been able to accelerate internal works. All the high-level services (air conditioning, power and lighting) are now complete and our focus has switched to low-level works and the raised floor itself. The floor is now installed in the majority of the building ready for radiators. Once they are in we’ll be adding final touches like fire exit signage, blinds and final decorations, as well as tiling bathrooms.
John: We’re really excited to be part of the project team at Sugar House Island. We were selected by Vastint because we focus on simplifying the fit-out process and speeding up fit-outs for tenants, perfect for the smaller creative companies likely to be attracted by the eight buildings at Dane’s Yard.
