akp were awarded the contract by Spire Global, who offer satellite based maritime and weather tracking around the world. In 2017 akp completed the fit out of Suite 5a in Skypark 5 for Spire.
Their growth has now involved the relocation to a new unit in Skypark, which is able to house their manufacturing and office requirements in one space. The project entailed the CAT B fit out of Unit 64 which has a recent CAT A refurbishment.
The works included:
- Full M&E services upgrade
- Installation & integration of a new Clean Room
- Acoustic walls & ceilings
- Manufactured joinery
- Decoration & floor finishes
Features such as acoustic sliding whiteboard screens, allowing both collaboration and privacy, and enclosed 2-4 person pods for VC calls and focused work can be seen in the innovative design by Form Design Consultants. As well as glazed slots within the arrival areas which offer glimpses into the satellite manufacturing laboratory, giving visitors a hint of the production side.
