The development of the Headquarters for GlaxoSmithKline aimed to create a prestigious UK base for the multinational pharmaceutical group. The £330 million Headquarters comprises 15 stories and is situated off the M4 in London.
The key challenge for Marshalls was to provide both internal and external ‘carpeting’ of high quality and durability. The surfacing needed to reflect the prestigious nature of the world class Headquarters, and have aesthetic appeal both inside and outside the building.
A key objective was to provide flooring for the ground floor concourse, which housed the retail and leisure area consisting of a bank, newsagents, hairdressers, relaxation area, restaurants and cafés.
Marshalls supplied 800 m2 of quality Diamond Sawn Yorkstone Paving. The Yorkstone provided flooring that had an attractive appearance, with a rich variety of colour, yet was slip resistant.
By working closely with the project architects, Marshalls specialists were able to provide specialist advice on material selection for high quality, durability and aesthetic appeal.
