FORA Borough is the fit-out of a newly constructed commercial office and retail space. FORA will manage the development when complete to provide professional co-working office and meeting spaces on a flexible basis. A number of high street retail units are also included on the site.

The development includes a restaurant at ground floor level (including a full commercial kitchen at lower ground floor area) as well as five floors of high quality co-working office and meeting space. The upper floor also includes a flexible event space.
A complete IT and audiovisual installation will be provided through the development allowing tenants to simply ‘plug and play’ upon arrival.

Cundall developed a complex IT, lighting control, audiovisual, security and access control brief into a fully integrated solution. This included the incorporation of environmental and lighting controls into the meeting room audiovisual controller.

A CO2 controlled ventilation system allows an overall diversity to be applied to the central plant by moving air to where it is required. This reduced the overall energy consumption as well as the size of the mechanical plant required.

The project will achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating with an EPC of B.

As well as developing the fit-out design for this project, Cundall also developed the overall ‘design principles’ for the building services and acoustic design for all other FORA schemes.
