Rolls-Royce - Vitality Building

Design & Build

A Design and Build project conducted within a secure production facility for regular client, Rolls-Royce at their Derby head quarters.

This project comprised the design and construction of a new office building with associated plant rooms, service yard, access roads, car parking and other external work. 
The four storey building is split into two wings of offices separated by a full height atrium. The building incorporates zinc and aluminium rainscreen cladding, insulating render and solar control louvers.
The construction comprises a traditional steel frame on piled concrete pad foundations, upper floors of precast concrete decking, roof coverings are of single membrane/ 3 layer felt on insulation on a precast concrete deck. External walls are of a metsec type framing system with architectural cladding in aluminium, through colour render.  Windows and entrance doors are thermally broken aluminium, with an extent of curtain walling in various locations around the building. Glazing to all elevations has to be designed to bomb blast resistance criteria.
Internal construction comprises of acoustic rated partition walls on raised access floors.

External works included alterations to an existing access road, construction of a SUDS car park area with associated roadways.

Rolls-Royce - Adapting environments

The building was constructed within Rolls-Royce's Marine Operations site off Raynesway, Derby, built on the footprint of an existing demolished office building and within the Rolls-Royce site security perimeter. The site is an existing secure production facility which operates on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis. We ensured works were planned to minimise any disruption.
