GIND UK completes quality checking at 30 Panton Street


A team of specialist engineers from GIND UK is on site at a major refurbishment project at 30 Panton Street in Central London, where they are undertaking safety wire quality checking and testing of a new façade access system.

30 Panton Street is a landmark West End office and retail development, occupying a commanding island site on Leicester Square. Key to the regeneration was preserving the Edwardian Portland stone façade and installing a contemporary bronze Mansard roof.

The island site was completely gutted whilst meticulously preserving the historic external walls. The colours and tones of these materials then set the theme of the interior fit-out in the entrance hall and upper floor office spaces.

In the entrance hall, full height dark umber anodised wall panels stand out against the polished stone walls and floors. Guiding visitors to upper floors, the aluminium panels have unique integrated lighting strips adding a warm glow to the foyer. Over the office security gates, pale umber anodised SAS200 leads visitors to the stairs, lifts and upper levels. Both the wall panels and ceiling system have a flush, concealed grid echoing the clean lines of the stone wall and floor panels. In the office areas, c-profiles with pearl mouse grey PPC continue the vintage theme across the SAS330 ceilings.

It is crucial to undertake safety wire quality checking and testing on all façade access systems such as the one at 30 Panton Street. Specialists from GIND UK are trusted to ensure the system is 100% safe and efficient to carry out vital maintenance work to the building’s substantial façade.
