One Crown Place
One Crown Place is a unique and exciting construction project. Melding historic Georgian architecture with sleek modern design, Hackney is a fitting setting for this ‘old-meets-new’ vision. This project has a particularly ambitious scope, including 246 private apartments and 140,000 sq ft of cutting-edge office space, not to mention converting a Georgian terrace into a luxury boutique hotel.

We collaborated with Mace to devise a strategy for passive fire protection. The main part of this was using intumescent paint to coat the structural steel framework, with a decorative finish. As well as this, we were asked to provide compartmentation services throughout the building.
With external work on the residential towers already underway, all passive fire protection had to be coordinated with efficiency and exact precision. Firstly, our paint package was incorporated into the project schedule with rigidity. This was to ensure minimal disruption to Mace’s ongoing construction work. As well as this, we co-ordinated the installation of penetration seals with other contractors. This facilitated safe and timely access to difficult-to-reach spaces whilst providing a fully compliant seal.
Work on One Crown Place is due to finish in the first quarter of 2021. We are sure this will continue to be both a rewarding and stimulating project, and that we hope to collaborate with Mace again in the future.
