Working closely with scheme architects Aukett to meet with environmental performance criteria, bespoke acoustic trickle ventilators were installed in the atrium. The bold entrance façade and sharp edged design of the building follows the tradition of the Radisson brand.
Upon completing the 8000m2 cladding contract, EAG won the coveted Sub Contractor of the Year Award for health and safety presented by Skanska Building UK in September 2004.
The new Open University Library has heralded a new era in state-of-the-art study facilities, and offers an indispensable resource for both the university’s students and the local community. Working together with Galliford Try Construction and Swanke Hayden Connell architects, EAG provided the feature rooflights, external glazing and cladding comprising of curtain walling ﬁxed within a structural opening created by a pre-cast concrete frame, with high performance glass units and aluminium composite panels located within the anodised framed apertures. The unusual “barcode” design of the façades, won EAG praise from the architectural community, whilst the articulation of this simple yet striking design allows controlled light ﬂow into the study areas of the library.

The scope included the leisure club and pool, ground and ﬁrst ﬂoor apartments, “Premier” units on 3rd to 18th ﬂoors and luxurious penthouse apartments on levels 12 to 18. Designed by Skidmore Owings Merill the scheme required an extensive use of glass, EAG gave a great deal of attention to the curved shape of the building which means that most apartments have spectacular views across the Thames.
