American Oak Panelling

Summary: American Oak panelling measuring 220 m2 for a School of Science on Euston Road, London

Location: Grafton House, Euston Road, London

Client: Forrest Gate Construction

Challenge: The oak panelling was across four floors. Each with a different layout

Solution: Bakers of Danbury’s Specialist Joinery Department were asked to supply 220m2 of American White Oak for a refurbishment to Grafton House in London.

The project was a conversion of an existing building to a modern science school.

All of the panels and oak had to be class 0 fire rated. Baker’s Joiners painted and installed over 2000 meters of oak strips which were fixed to painted black 12mm MDF with spacing’s of 20mm to give a shadow gap appearance.

The project was split across four floors and each floor had a different layout, so a full site survey was necessary to ensure each floor was measured correctly.
