RAWSON Carpet Solutions has supplied its structured Riven carpet plank at The Alconbury Civic Hub. The new Civic Hub is designed to provide an innovative, contemporary workspace for Cambridgeshire County Council’s staff as well as providing the public with a new welcoming Civic Hub.
Rawson Carpet Solution’s designer nylon carpet planks have reportedly been used to great effect. Riven in Slate colourway allows for subtle, natural expression in this new building built by RG Carter. A total 2,140sq m of Rawson’s RIVEN design has been installed in Slate plank along with 685sq m in Graphite.
The curved building is split into two wings, the Riven plank runs though the internal spaces allowing the natural light to capture its structured design in certain spaces and for the flowing aesthetic of this 2ply solution dyed nylon plank to be truly utilised.
The light, open-plan office space is designed to Cambridgeshire’s brief of accommodating fixed and flexible workstations. Natural colours along with the structured pattern of the Riven range installed by Northants Flooring help lighten the modern, comfortable workspace and contribute to a pleasing aesthetic.
Says the company: ‘The 750g yarn weights ensured that the carpet is quiet and comfortable underfoot. The building is separated by a cut through, acting as the building’s public and private entrances.
‘The larger east wing accommodates staff offices, meeting rooms, and political party rooms, and the east end offers views towards the new landscape. The new building has been constructed with as little impact as possible on the environment and is designed to promote more flexible and agile working among staff, linked to technological advances and transformed working practices, and aimed at reducing congestion in Cambridge. A truly inspired space designed by AHMM.’
