During an extremely hectic period in the design office, we needed additional experienced cladding design recourse to backup our in house team. GK Design provided this service. The Old Church Street project in Chelsea involved multiple configurations of decorative anodised cladding panels, complete with matching windows and doors and stainless steel balustrades. Over a period of six months, the project moved from concept design to prototype and final production drawings, with every panel, cover strip, window frame and joint detail given the same high level of care and attention by GK Design, a very reliable and knowledgeable team we can rely on to meet the needs of our business.
