Heathrow, World Business Centre
Project Completed: Heathrow, World Business Centre
The World Business Centre at Heathrow is a phased development of office buildings located on the north side of the London Heathrow Airport, fronting the airport perimeter road, adjacent to the Bath Road, with views of the runway. There are currently 3 phases of similar buildings, constructed between 1996 and 2002, with potential for a fourth phase. WBC 1 and WBC 2 are approximately 60,000 sq ft. The development offers office suites on flexible terms to aviation and airport related occupiers and the floor plates are designed to be partitioned down to quarter floors offering suites from 3,150 sq ft.
Vitrabond is composed of two aluminium cover sheets sandwiched with a special homogeneous mineral based core material. It is a simple concept, resulting in outstanding surface flatness and high workability, with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Vitrabond is well suited for both exterior and interior architectural applications, as well as for industrial and specialty product designs. Applications include exterior cladding, signage, corporate ID, column covers, interior partitions, canopies, equipment enclosures and kiosks. The creative possibilities of Vitrabond really have no limits.
The versatility, combined with the availability of different panel fixing and jointing methods for vertical and horizontal joints, angles and curves, result in a smooth building envelope with no reduction in surface integrity.
Vitrabond ACP offers a unique combination of features and benefits that few other products can match.
