The Robinson Structures Project
Robinson Structures are highly regarded Steel Construction Specialists, who have a simple goal to design, manage and build structures to the highest of standards. DSP Derby, a design and build contractor, appointed Komfort to assist with the design and fit out of Robinson Structures headquarters in Derby.
Robinson Structures headquarters are located on the outskirts of Derby and were re-designed, built and refurbished in 2017.
The Brief in Brief
DSP Derby were briefed to design and fit-out Robinson Structure’s headquarters with a desire to move away from traditional cellular offices to modern open spaces. As Steel Construction specialists, they wanted to incorporate steel fabrications into the design to showcase elements of both their factories and offices. Specifically, the client wanted to expose the structure of the building and showcase their expertise and products. To support staff working and promote collaboration, DSP Derby were briefed to create clever sub-divisions of space with impressive acoustic benefits.
Komfort’s Polar double-glazed partitions provided the ideal solution for dividing space in a clever and minimalistic way. Manufactured to the highest quality, the double glazed Polar partitions have impressive acoustic thresholds of up to 49dB (Rw), which is becoming more and more essential in today’s working environment. Providing opportunity for both communicative and inspired work, Polar double glazed’s simplistic method of installation, demountability and powerful acoustic properties makes it an intelligent option for modern offices.
Additionally, because of Robinson Structures engineering expertise, steel girders were built above and around the Polar single glazed track work to create smaller offices and meeting rooms. To meet safety regulations, Komfort’s partitions had contemporary, optically clear and opal frost manifestations installed.
The end result
Robinson Structures now have remarkable headquarters which align to their inspiring work. Additional to the glass partitions, the fit-out included bespoke solid surfaces, reception desk, ceiling raft, ground floor kitchenette, breakout area, and bespoke TV surrounds. The newly developed agile work zones have certainly created a more inspiring work environment which help promote collaboration and build on the company ethos.
As always, it was a pleasure to work with DSP Derby, and we look forward to working together on future projects.
