A joint venture between Grosvenor Britain & Ireland and Stow Capital Partners, the 425 Oxford Street retail scheme involves the reconfiguration and extension of the lower five floors of a 10-storey building in the West End shopping district, to create a 45,000 sq. ft flagship unit for Adidas.
The redevelopment features new double-height windows on the ground floor and an extensive glass frontage.
To prevent heat loss through the building facade, Farrat have supplied Structural Thermal Breaks for use within the facade retention steelwork. The facade thermal breaks will act as a thermal insulator and avert thermal or cold bridging.
This is a simple, economical and extremely effective solution to meeting Building Regulations by way of reducing the risk of internal condensation.
Farrat Structural Thermal Breaks can be used in a wide variety of applications where there is a structural requirement of thermal insulation, including:
- Steel to steel
- Steel to concrete / masonry
- Steel to timber
- Concrete to concrete
A full list of typical applications can be found here.
Handover of the bespoke scheme to Adidas is targeted for Spring 2019.
