Hong Kong International Airport, China

Hong Kong International Airport, China

Zoeftig Ltd

Zoeftig’s Far Eastern portfolio is expanding fast. With a new office now open in Kuala Lumpur, and the company having already fitted out major terminal developments in China, the Zoeftig name is fast becoming known and respected in the region. This position has been further strengthened with the completion of Zoeftig’s latest fit out, as part of Hong Kong International Airport’s new HK$10 billion Midfield Concourse (MFC).Over 5,500 of its inFINITE seats and 1,600 power positions were fitted as part of the new 105,000m2 complex, and in-seat power was a key driver behind the design and configuration of the seating solution. The bespoke designs, installed in stunning red and grey colourways, feature Zoeftig’s market leading in-seat power solutions. The special individual USB charging modules were developed for optimum passenger convenience, with each of the twin USB sockets capable of delivering 2.4 amps of power simultaneously; going beyond the capabilities of traditional socket USB charging points, which are restricted to a maximum of 1.2 amps when both sockets are in use. This means that tablet devices can be charged at the same speed as they would be if connected to a 220v or 110v supply. Traditional USB charging points will only ‘trickle charge’, so the inclusion of the Zoeftig’s USB charging modules negates the need for the airport to supply mains voltage power to each seat. All USB sockets are also replaceable without needing to change the transforming module, allowing for the low cost replacement of damaged USB sockets. All modules were produced and colour matched to the new seats and all feature full closed system cable management to ensure maximum passenger safety. Alongside safety, practicality was another key design factor. Cable management is one specific area that Zoeftig has worked to further develop for bespoke projects like Hong Kong and this work has culminated in a number of new solutions. Zoeftig’s power feed cable with braided sheathing is designed to run from the floor box to the leg conduit. The sheathing is then clamped at each end to protect the seating connections and the plug in the floor box from accidental strain. A specially designed clamp grips the power feed cable at the appropriate length and is then locked into position when the floor box cover is inserted into the floor box base frame. The unique shape of the clamp ensures that the cables exit lies flat on the floor; thus protecting the cables and minimising trip risks to passengers. Another feature of the safe cable management design includes a cable clamp positioned on the seat’s rear leg. This method allows the clamp to rotate around the leg whilst providing a strong mounting location and protects the internal cables and conduits from accidental movement and strain.
Bridglea Pupil Referral Unit

Bridglea Pupil Referral Unit

Boyco (UK) Ltd

"Boyco did an exceptional job of meeting our unique requirements on this project, and it didn’t stop at the initial installation! Boyco’s installers were regularly on hand to find innovative solutions to unexpected problems arising in the challenging environment – in particular children trying to climb on top of the Teaching Walls. I am very impressed with Boyco’s products and service and would recommend them to anybody looking for a bespoke solution for challenging environments." - Diane Hallworth, Bridglea PRUCHALLENGES & SOLUTIONSOn arrival for the installation, Boyco installers found that steel dado trunking had been installed along the Classroom walls, and the electric sockets were mislocated which caused them to clash with the electric source needed for the Teaching Walls. Our installers carried out all necessary remedial work to align the Teaching wall electrical access points to the wrongly positioned sockets on the dado trunking.After successful installation of the Teaching Walls, we were informed by Bridglea PRU that children had been climbing up the side of the Teaching Walls by suspending themselves between the Teaching Wall and the classroom wall–in an attempt to get on top of the Teaching Walls and climb inside the cabinets. Boyco supplied & installed bespoke infill boxes to the corner of the necessary Teaching Walls, to prevent pupils being able to gain any access to the roof of the Teaching Walls.
Leicestershire Police Charging Lockers

Leicestershire Police Charging Lockers

Helmsman

Helmsman won an exciting Leicestershire Police project for charging lockers with bespoke specifications. Leicestershire Police is the territorial Police force responsible for policing Leicestershire and Rutland areas in England.For this project, we had to balance two sets of needs. We needed to create an ideal storage solution for technological equipment and to deliver something stylish and space-saving. Our team recommended a few options, but being able to provide a bespoke powered solution was most important.Helmsman manufactured, supplied and delivered bespoke powered lockers to the headquarter office in Enderby for the frontline staff. Above all, these lockers serve the purpose of storing technological devices such as laptops and airwave radios. Security has been the key to this project. A request of 12 compartments per locker meant lockers could hold more items within the small space.Inside each compartment, there are 2 UK sockets with double USB portals on each side. Each locker compartment has a four-number combination lock for protection. Every locker has a ‘D’ door which can open all locker compartments with one master key, only accessible for supervisors who may need to reset locks for a single locker compartment. The ON/OFF switch is located at the top of each locker in the sloping top, saving electricity and keeping clear of clutter. Sizes are 1800mm high by 450mm wide and 500mm deep, been powder coated in standard colours of ‘ice’ and ‘royale’ for the doors. These doors have bespoke square perforations specifically requested by Leicestershire Police. In addition, they are easy to use and plug into a standard wall socket.Emergency service personnel in mind, Police lockers provide robust, practical storage solutions. We manufacture a variety of Police lockers for uniforms, kits and other equipment.

In addition, specialist ball stop netting designed specifically for tennis courts is installed with apertures that are small enough that tennis balls cannot pass through.
Stunning new projects with elegant acoustic design

Stunning new projects with elegant acoustic design

Troldtekt A/S

Danish manufactured Troldtekt panels are commonly specified throughout the UK and Europe to improve the interior acoustic environment. Two recent Danish projects are the transformation of an old building into a car dealer’s offices for Karvil Biler, while the other is an extension of Randers Architects’ own headquarters into a mix of offices and exclusive residential units. Both projects use Troldtekt® line with its perfectly symmetrical vertical lines to balance walls and ceilings with great aesthetics, conveying warmth and providing a modern look coupled with high performance sound absorption.For the Architects’ washrooms, Troldtekt® line was chosen to add visual vibrancy to the rooms. It also exhibits different appearances depending on the angle from which the wall surfaces are viewed. The edges have been milled where the panels meet the ceiling, around electrical sockets and switches and also at floor level where bamboo skirting has been integrated. All have been elegantly cut to ensure a neat finish and fine detailing.In the car dealers, Troldtekt® line was selected in order to enhance and benefit the whole indoor climate. “We wanted to create a coherent look. The milled grooves have a visually calming effect and contrast well with the new raw concrete floor,” the project manager explained. Troldtekt® line forms nine acoustic solutions that make up the “design solutions” range which combines the best ideals of form and function. Founded on the Cradle to Cradle design concept, 100% Troldtekt’s natural wood wool panels are manufactured in a new state-of-the-art production facility. With a variety of different surfaces and colours, they can be supplied in the FSC® 100% category (FSC®C115450) contributing to a building’s BREEAM, DGNB and LEED rating. In addition to their high sound absorption and tactile surface, the panels offer high durability and low cost life cycle performance, as well as inherent sustainability. They are also a natural, breathable material which can absorb and release moisture, which is why they have been awarded an Allergy Friendly Product Award by Allergy UK.

Aston Villa High Performance Centre

Aston Villa High Performance Centre

Ferco Seating Systems Ltd

Aston Villa's £6 million High Performance Centre opened in May 2021 at the club's Bodymoor Heath training site. The two-storey building features a state-of-the-art gym, indoor running track & sand box, as well as match analysis, meeting & treatment rooms. Villa chief executive Christian Purslow and manager Dean Smith were inspired to create the elite sports science, strength & conditioning and rehab centre following a visit to the NFL's Minnesota Vikings' facilities.Lifelong Aston Villa fan Prince William, HRH Duke of Cambridge officially opened the venue, which will be used by the men's first team as well as the women's team and the boys and girls of the Aston Villa academy. The High Performance Centre is the latest development by owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens following the £14 million Academy completed last summer - with plans for an 'inner city academy' submitted to Birmingham council too.Having previously installed the ARC VIP seat in the corporate areas at Villa Park, when the club needed seats for their new High Performance Centre, Ferco were the company they came to. Once again, the ARC VIP sports seat was a natural choice as it combines comfort, luxury and longevity. For this project the seats were customised with arm rest panels and were upholstered in anthracite coloured faux leather. The club's crest was also embroidered on to each seat as a finishing touch. Ferco installed a total of 41 ARC VIP seats for Aston Villa across their briefing, viewing and boot rooms.Ferco's ARC VIP sports seat is a popular choice for executive and hospitality areas of stadiums. It is practical and has been designed to take up the minimal amount of space whilst still feeling luxurious for corporate guests. The ergonomic design of the seat provides maximum comfort and can be finished in a wide range of materials. The ARC VIP's tip-up mechanism is silent and is incredibly strong meaning virtually no maintenance is needed through the life of the seat. It is possible to customise the seat with cup holders, heating elements and power sockets for phone or laptop charging.With detailed embroidery of logos or badges included, the ARC VIP sports seat is a popular choice with venues for good reason. Ferco Seating were thrilled to be a part of this project at Aston Villa, and the client was very happy that they now have an elite sports seat fitted which performs at the highest levels and matches the ethos of this new centre for sporting excellence.
