Neaco’s Techdek metal grate flooring has been specified at Principal Place, a 621,000 sq. ft. office building on the border of Shoreditch and the City of London.
Set to become Amazon UK’s London HQ when it takes occupation this summer, Principal Place is part of a mixed-use complex which will also feature Principal Tower, a 50-storey apartment building, as well as 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space and a brand new public piazza comprising half an acre of public realm and an events space. Techdek has been chosen for metal grate flooring/drainage gullies on the roof terrace of Principal Place. Neaco supplied a bespoke specification with a flat bar aluminium profile in a specially formulated powder coated finish to create the appearance of anodised bronze.
Neaco’s Office Sales Manager, Steve Howard, said: “Our Techdek system is accumulating an outstanding portfolio of specifications at landmark developments worldwide. In the past two years alone it has been chosen for a series of major projects that includes roof walkways at Monterrey FC’s new Estadio BBVA Bancomer in Mexico, roof walkways at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia, an internal cycle park at the XYZ building in Manchester and bridge decking at Passerelle Becon-Les-Bruyeres in Paris. Architects have identified Techdek’s broad range of qualities as a reliable, durable and eco-friendly solution. Many of our most high-profile specifications are repeat business with clients due to Techdek’s excellent performance on their past projects.”
Techdek’s Flat Bar metal grate flooring profile is lightweight yet strong and available in two standard thicknesses. Panels are manufactured off site and provide fast, mess-free installation with no welding required. The system has environmental credentials with non-toxic, corrosion-resistant panels manufactured from recycled aluminium which is 100 per cent recyclable with no downgrading of its properties required for re-melting. Techdek’s range of profiles is suitable for many other applications, including stages, screens and cladding, brise soleils and maintenance walkways.
