Reynaers brings panoramic views to Jersey Esplanade

  • 24 Jan 2017

The largest single office development in the Channel Islands utilises multiple aluminium glazing systems from leading UK aluminium systems supplier, Reynaers.

Jersey Esplanade, extending to over 200,000 sq ft, contains large, open plan office spaces across six storeys, surrounding a central atrium and circulation core. This in turn allows breath-taking panoramic views of St Aubins Bay, therefore maximising the coastal location and creating a striking new gateway to St Helier.

Combining modulated stone cladding with expansive areas of Reynaers aluminium curtain walling, the BREEAM-rated building is occupied by blue-chip brands such as Royal Bank of Canada, Deloitte and C5 Alliance.

Known as Gaspe House, the project has been created by architects at Axis Mason who have created a modern, innovative co-working space that facilitates collaboration with its open layout. The project has been named Gaspe House to remember the Jersey fishermen who settled in Gaspe, Quebec, marking cultural links between Jersey and Canada.

The Reynaers systems include CW 86 and CW 50 curtain walling, as well as CS 68 and CS 77 aluminium windows and doors, which transforms the Jersey seafront.

Curtain walling system CW 86 can be pre-assembled in the workshop to decrease time on the building site thanks to high execution speed and available in two glazing variants. Cassettes can then be hooked onto a traditional stick structure or the facade can be built up element by element according to the modular curtain wall principle.

Consult Project Manager at Reynaers, Dave Rees commented on the difficult conditions of the building location and the importance of timing. He claimed that unitised facades provided the perfect solution for Jersey Esplanade due to their speed of build and increased fabricator efficiency whilst maintaining performance and aesthetic quality.

Reynaers’ Marketing Manager, Rebecca Cope, said the project showcased their CS 68 and CS 77 aluminium windows and doors, helping the build to achieve its BREEAM status.
