Komfort recently provided the perfect solution at the new Farnborough HQ of Fluor, an engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance company of international repute.
Our expertise helped streamline the space, delivering a series of private, individual offices finished to the high standard expected from both Komfort and Fluor. Delivering a combination of Komfort’s Ls90 panels, with walnut doors and single glazed Polar partitions, Fluor’s offices have been transformed to enable the best use of space by creating areas and rooms sectioned off by the partitioning system. Selected after viewing the products at our London showroom and reference site, Fluor’s office now benefits from the integration of Komfort’s highly flexible steel panels alongside aesthetically appealing Polar glass.
With a swift turnaround required to complete the installation, Komfort worked closely with Fluor and Stortford - the contractor, to ensure the system was delivered on time and within budget.
Jim Nania, Managing Director of Stortford Interiors UK Ltd, said: “The installation of Komfort’s Ls90 and Polar products at Fluor’s offices went extremely smoothly and was in fact a relatively straightforward project for us. I believe that three key reasons can be attributed to this - namely our vast experience of working with the Ls90 and Single Glazed Polar products, the training of the Stortford Interiors delivery team, and the fact that we were able to work very closely with a dedicated team from Komfort who excelled. Despite extremely tight deadlines, we delivered the project on time as a result of good planning, constant communication with Komfort and excellent co-ordination with the other trades on the project.”
Komfort’s single glazed Polar is ideal for installation in the workplace due to its translucent glazed nature, allowing light to pass through a space uninterrupted. To ensure the privacy of a newly partitioned space is not affected, single glazed Polar partitioning is supplied with semi-transparent manifestation, in a range of designs to suit its location, and is compliant with the Colour Contrast for the Visually Impaired guidance notes as set out under Part M. This document states that where large areas of glass partitioning are installed, there must be a visual contrast to highlight the cohesion between one element - glass and another - its surroundings (including doors and open space) so as to enable those with visual impairments to distinguish between different objects and surfaces.
James Humphreys – Southern Region Sales Director from Komfort said: “With partitioning required in multiple areas throughout Fluor’s Farnborough based office, we were able to provide the ideal solution by providing a combination of Ls90 panels, single glazed Polar products and a large volume of doors. We worked very closely with Fluor and Stortford Interiors on this project to ensure it was completed within the expected timeframe and also inline with the set budget, offering technical help and advice where required. As such, this project was only achievable thanks to the support from our highly flexible manufacturing and technical teams achieving manufacturing excellence.”
