Open to the public since Saturday 28 March, 2015, The Queen herself opened the memorial. This eye-catching building was designed by Folkestone architectural practice Godden Allen Lawn in the shape of a Spitfire wing, complete with its famous uplift. It has been built by Kent-based Epps Construction.
Right from the stage of planning to when the memorial was complete, we worked closely with the design teams to ensure that the building would be Part L, this ensured that the building would achieve sign off local authority and the marvellous piece of architecture would be unveiled to the public.
The Consultants at E2 built a virtual 3D model of the proposed memorial building using complete sets of architectural drawings, it may have been a complex shape, but it was no problem for our experienced team.
Having received full construction, mechanical and electrical specification for the fit out of the memorial, they were able to extrapolate and input this into the building.
From the construction of the walls, right down to the wattage of the light fittings, all of these details were incorporated into the Designbuilder simulation software in order to generate the BRUKL reports that achieved Part L compliance.
