ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2016

Project Detail

Optimax, Market Harborough

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2016 Finalist

A growing technology company, Optimax wanted a modern versatile open-plan office building with workshops for the maintenance of high precision equipment, a large showroom and a product demonstration area.

Located on the Peaker Park development site, on the eastern edge of Market Harborough, the building’s two floors include floor space of more than 4,000 square feet.

As microscopic engineers, Optimax have a keen appreciation for fine tolerances so there was added emphasis on achieving excellent workmanship and construction quality. 

Project Overview

Optimax and the team behind the building worked hard on the design so it would provide the specifications the business needs. The result allows for future expansion.

The design features render clad walls, scored to break the façade and create a panelled effect. A new dark render provides a prominent contrast on the otherwise white building.

Aluminium was used for windows, soffits and detailing, and is combined with coloured glazing and modern sustainable clay roof tiles to create the building’s individual visual identity.

Energy saving initiatives include air recirculation systems, low energy lighting, sensor lighting in ancillary spaces and door closers to minimise daily energy use.
