REGIANNI LIMITED LIGHTING

CHESTER ROAD

BOREHAMWOOD, HURTS

The procedure adopted for the procurement and construction of Reggiani Lighting’s new headquarters in Borehamwood was unusual by UK standards - but entirely typical of the lighting manufacturer. The brief given to architects Axia was unusually specific.

It was to construct a building consisting of a warehouse of approximately 2000 square metres and offices of approximately 1200 square metres in the form of three simple volumes, with the twin office wings projecting from the warehouse towards the street and terminating with winding staircase with a strong visual impact. 

 

The result is an elegant C-shape with a large central plaza for parking and space for lorries to manoeuvre when loading and unloading goods.  At the entrance to the plaza, visitors are greeted by a sculpture by Alex Corno.

The building was constructed in two phases - the shell and core was carried out exclusively by UK companies; and the fit-out, m & e installation and finishes were largely the responsibility of Italian firms.

BRITISH TELECOMMUNICATIONS PLC

BRITISH TELECOM TOWER

LONDON

The British Telecom Tower formerly known as the Post Office Tower has undergone many changes to keep pace with modern telecommunications and I.T advances since its original construction although it is still best known for its revolving restaurant on the 34th floor.  However since a terrorist bomb was placed in the restaurant over 30 years ago it has never been reopened to the public and is now only used for corporate hospitality.

Fleming Russell Stent have been involved in many projects at “The Tower” during the last 10 years, including the installation of probably the largest standby generators in London, construction of temporary television studios for the Euro ‘96 football championships and, most interestingly of all, the erection of the new illuminated corporate signage 36 floors above ground level, a project on which we acted as project managers.
