One Crown Place, London is a recent success story for CLM Fireproofing and involved the whole spectrum of our services, including our early engagement process which is proving to be a huge success with all clients.
The project consists of two prismatic towers, rising 28 and 33 storeys into the sky. At ground level, stands a 6-storey building – home to 10,650sqm of high-quality office space, a variety of retail units and a boutique hotel and members’ club occupying Sun Street’s elegant row of Georgian terraces.
The commercial floors are steel-framed and CLM used the self-priming Nullifire SC902 intumescent coatings system to achieve a high decorative finish to the frame which will remain on display. The protection achieved was a mixture of 90 and 120 minutes.
The two concrete towers have different protection factors due to the multi-use nature of the building. The basement levels required some increased protection factors, due to the high risk nature of the room, providing up to 4 hours protection in certain areas.
Our early engagement process was utilised on the project, which resulted in us producing a suite of tested solutions for all the firestopping of service penetrations throughout the building. Our fire and insulation solutions were used on a number of floors to increase the fire resistance. We also installed all the fire breaks to the external cladding, ensuring a fully compliant building.
