Battersea offices Boasting 52,000 sq ft of energy efficient office space over five floors, Battersea Studios 2 is packed full of exciting and attractive features, such as an exposed steel roof frame, decked balconies and a custom Timber Fin Solar Shading system from Levolux. Western Red Cedar Timber Fins are a popular choice for use as Brise Soleil, Screening and Cladding. As an alternative to aluminium, Barr Gazetas architects specified Levolux’s natural untreated Western Red Cedar Timber Fins to be installed to form a screened enclosure for two external staircases and internally to screen a staircase leading up from the reception area. In total, 716 Western Red Cedar half elliptical section louvers, each measuring 140mm x 90mm were installed vertically as a simple, yet effective screening solution. Levolux installed a further 63 horizontal, vertically stacked elliptical Timber Fins externally, to provide shade to two glazed bays. Measuring 300mm x 50mm, these Timber Fins are designed to minimise solar heat gain, which reduces the need for energy sapping air conditioning. For more information visit

exceptional experience, enjoying the comfort, luxury and hospitality of superb surroundings, safe in the knowledge that their carbon footprint has been significantly reduced thanks to its visionary developer, Mr Ike Latif.

The Spaceway Group’s professional approach has resulted in it winning a £30,000 order to fit out Jacksons-Mercedes Benz new administrative offices in Poole. The 3,000 sq foot office accommodation, located on the Nuffield Industrial Estate in Poole, has been turned into a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment. When negotiations fell through to remain in temporary office accommodation, rented during the refurbishment of its showroom, Jacksons-Mercedes Benz needed to move its

administrative staff into new offices within a short time frame. Gareth Coping, Financial Director of Jacksons-Mercedes Benz was impressed with Spaceway’s innovative solutions, quality products and attention to detail. “We chose Spaceway as they have an excellent reputation for meeting deadlines and was by far the most impressive company to tender”, said Copling.
