Winner of LABC West of England Building Excellence Award 2018 - Small New Housing Development

Herman Miller, Portal Road, Melksham Design Street & Offices

Internal reconfiguration to provide new office and design spaces from existing warehouse. Extension and amendment of external parking areas.

Strip out of existing warehouse space in the region of 2000m² over 3 floors to allow construction of new office and design spaces and ‘Design Street’ frontage. Relocation and modification of existing fire escape stairs and dismantling of internal elements to facilitate proposed layout. Construction of steel frame first and second floors and all necessary structural amendments.

Erection of Eurobond Firemaster Extra partition wall, 12 metres high to provide fire barrier between joinery shop floor and new areas. Metal frame partitions with fireline boarding to separate work spaces; access flooring on plywood base; and suspended ceilings. Glass partitions to meeting rooms and creation of gallery openings to main atrium.

This project was completed while allowing the client’s production joinery workshop and remaining warehouse activities to continue in close proximity to the construction works. A protection barrier of solid hording and netting was erected to a height of 12m to ensure no falling debris posed a danger to the workers on the other side of the barrier.

Extensive external works – comprising new block paving, car park and amendments to existing carpark areas – were complemented by new landscaping.

Rigg Construction (Southern) Limited successfully completed and handed over the project to the client on time and within contract sum in September 2018. Since completion of the main works, Herman Miller have directly commissioned additional works to be carried out by the Rigg team.
