Hollywood House

Overview

Hollywood House has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment of the entire building for both common parts and floor areas. The reception area has recently been completed, which includes a new reception area and the final part of the upgrade to the common areas. The property is centrally located and close to all the town centre retail and leisure amenities.

Maris Expertise
Maris has undertaken a detailed office design development project for 2H Offshore Engineering Ltd at Hollywood House in Woking. The conceptual scheme for the new office was based upon the business idea of providing solutions in the engineering sector.

Location

Woking mainline railway station is within a 3 minute walk and provides fast and frequent services to London Waterloo (8 trains per hour) and to the South West. Woking is also well positioned with excellent road connections to the M25 / M3 and the A3.

Accommodation

The accommodation within the property allows for a 1.5m planning module, which is extremely efficient. Working with the property this would dictate an office size of 3m x 3m or 3m x 4.5m. The suspended ceiling system which incorporates 600mm x 600mm tiles also supports the planning grid and efficient design of cellular areas within the floor.

The raised floor zone is in keeping with industry standards as is the 2.65m floor to ceiling height. We are aware that the ceiling void is adequate for services; however, we will need to review the design solution to control the transfer of noise for cellular space.

The air conditioning and ventilation specification is in keeping with industry standards and we believe the building services provide us sufficient flexibility to be able to control your budget in this area given the scope of our proposal. Power provision is in keeping with industry standards and we do not foresee this limiting your occupation within the property, however as the design scheme develops we shall undertake a formal load assessment to underline our findings in this area.

We estimate that lighting is provided at 450 lux (at desk level). The light fittings are CAT 7 as defined in the specification details for the property. We note that the lighting control system is configured to an open plan layout and you may wish to review with the Landlord additional contribution in this area. The property is protected by a fire alarm system that will need to be considered within the office design in order to minimise expenditure in this area.

Green Enhancements

Green Enhancements have also been undertaken which include features such as:

• Combined heat and power system
• LTHW variable flow controls
• Solar heating for stored water to toilets
• Daylight sensing lights
• Best efficiency lights
• Dimmable ballast to all office lights
• Low energy LED lighting to lifts circulation areas
• Energy metering (gas)
• Energy metering (electricity)
• Photovoltaic system
• Lift upgrades
• Showers for cyclist or runners
• Cycle racks
• Lower water usage
• Rain water harvesting
• Energy eye in main reception
• UV filters on incoming mains water
• Window Shading – film to windows
• Electric car charging
• Car park lighting – movement detectors
• Heat reclaim from roof AHUs
• Improved EPC building rating
• Awareness of ozone depleting substances and recycling
• Waste from refurbishment works
• BMS improved controls
• Additional motor bike parking bays
• Additional disabled car parking bays

The property has several green enhancements but we are not aware of a formal certification such as BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method).
