The Alexion Pharma Project
Versatility and guaranteed performance were key factors in the choice of Komfort for this biopharmaceutical giant’s UK offices.
Ls90 white metal panels with grey framework and acoustic barriers, together with matching folding walls and White Oak timber doors were ideal for Alexion Pharma’s newly refurbished offices in Uxbridge.
Alexion Pharma is a global biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and delivering life-transforming therapies for patients with severe and life-threatening rare disorders.

The Brief in Brief
The specification for their offices originated through NAI Hayward Architects in Great Missenden and early engagement with the architects ensured Komfort were specified for both the Ls90 and timber doors.
The tendering process was through several contractors with the fit-out contractors, MoorCo securing the contract. There were technical design issues that needed to be resolved and through several meetings with the main contractor and Alexion, specific finishes were agreed, including dry wipe panelling and White Oak doors.
Komfort’s intelligent solution delivered mainly Ls90 with powder coated steel panels, timber doors, folding walls, Polar, acoustic barriers above the partitions and curved dry lining in the entrance foyer.
The fully reusable nature of Komfort’s Ls90 was important for Alexion; this saves time and money by ensuring spaces can be reconfigured quickly and easily without the need for new partitioning. Ls90’s hung panel design creates a floating panel effect with no visible framing on solid elements, while its doorframe, junctions and flush panel-to-panel elements enhance this minimal look.
The end result
The project was delivered on a supply and fit basis; it was an 8 week programme that was delivered on time with no defect issues and the client was delighted with the installation.
Komfort Technical Director, Matt Peake said: “The beauty of Ls90 is its versatility both in terms of the aesthetics it can produce and accommodating future change, whether you want to reconfigure an entire space or individual elements. Furthermore, because we manufacture each element of the system in a quality controlled factory environment it offers a high level of finished quality on site.”
