cube_design is pleased to welcome Valerios to the practice, having graduated from Portsmouth University.
cube_design were delighted to attend the opening ceremony of the new First Rung facilities at 333 Edgware Road on Wednesday 5th September 2018. cube_design have been involved on the project since early 2018 and worked relentlessly with First Rung to enable a significant refurbishment of the ground floor of an existing office block, into an education facility.
It was a dark, miserable and sad space, which has been converted into an exciting teaching area for First Rung and their learners.
We had a very short timescale from the end of May to the beginning of August to complete the works, which were successfully undertaken by Crown Interiors. Working closely with the CEO and one of the Charity Trustees, we achieved our deadline within budget and programme; and the quality is fantastic.
We also had to accommodate an Ofsted inspection and received a very positive response.
It was a delight for cube_design to be involved in such a humbling and challenging project. Please clink the link to First Rung’s website to assist this charitable organisation continue with their worthy cause:
Work continues on our project, the Silverstone Experience. The structural frame is stunning and we are nearing a position to enclose the building and provide cladding to the WWII hangar.
What an amazing structure!
cube_design is pleased to welcome Adam, who joins us from the Czech Republic to gain valuable UK experience over the summer period; a welcome back to Adrian, who is half way through his Masters at the University of Portsmouth, and also joins us to gain further experience over the summer; and finally, a welcome to Adamantios, who recently completed his Part 2 studies at the University of Portsmouth and will shortly be looking to progress his Part 3 architectural training.
cube_design spent last Thursday visiting their newly finished extension and refurbishment at the Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' Preparatory School in Elstree, Hertfordshire. The team received a warm welcome from the School and spent a couple of hours enjoying the beautiful buildings and campus surround.
Just a stones throw from the School, cube_design then visited the new Bushey Cemetery. Completed in 2017, the 16-acre site is one of serenity. The two prayer halls and associated buildings, constructed from stone, timber and beautiful detailing, offer visitors a sensitive and calming atmosphere.
We were blessed with great weather, great company and a fantastic meal to end the day.
Progress continues with the Silverstone Experience. The building, which is now at a stage where the frame has been completed, is ready for the external facade. Deck installations have taken place and all of the strengthening works, which have been particularly complex, are also complete.
cube_design, joined by Mann Williams, Hoare Lea and Illman Young, were kindly invited by Silverstone to attend the Grand Prix Friday practice. All enjoyed a brilliant day at the Drivers' Lounge, situated between the world-famous Stowe and Club Corners.
However, the focus remains on the experience building, to ensure it is delivered at the appropriate time for our client.
cube_design visited the recently completed St Peter’s Primary School, Iford and were astounded by the quality of the finishes and workmanship achieved within an extremely constrained budget.
cube_design worked closely with Bournemouth Borough Council to achieve the impressive refurbishment of the facilities. The chosen photographs identify a selection of before and after shots, which highlight the outstanding success that has been achieved for the school.
We recently held a training session with Morgan Sindall regarding the Southern Construction Framework and now have 11 trained SCF consultant partners.
cube_design is excited to advise that for the second time, we have successfully developed and obtained an outline planning permission for a site-wide masterplan for Silverstone Circuits Ltd.
cube_design has worked extensively with the Design Team over the past two years to make this opportunity a reality.
The masterplan, which straddles two local authorities and required extensive negotiation with numerous statutory stakeholders, has considered a phased development for the next 10 - 15 years. It is hoped that the initial phase, incorporating a 4* hotel and two brand centres, will commence within the next six months.
cube_design is excitedly counting down to the completion of Project Filius at The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School. The handover of the preparatory school new build and extension is scheduled for the 1st June 2018.
