The purpose of the Deli Spices project was to create a first of its kind food lab/ innovation centre and office suite.
The brief called for an extensive revamp to an existing Industrial space and to transform it into a completely functional Innovation Centre. Steel played a pivotal role in achieving the outcomes that the professional team envisioned from the onset. Columns – Girders – trusses and purlins rails form part of the subframe.
Tying the new steel framing into the existing steel structure. The outer framing required a sequence for installation which meant every panel had to be numbered before the installation commenced.
Impressive technical aspects
The existing material framing was steel and the use of added steel framing allowed the project to connect old and new structural elements in a quick and seamless manner
How the project demonstrates the benefits of steel
The existing material framing was steel and the use of added steel framing allowed the project to connect old and new structural elements in a quick and seamless manner.
The steelwork is an integral part of the aesthetic especially the visible draped screen which playfully accentuates a wave pattern throughout. It is visibly impressive and functional in that it allows for filtered light to permeate into office spaces.
