Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate Plc is an LSE listed property company (LSE: KWE) that invests in real estate across UK, Ireland, Spain and Italy.

Their existing portfolio is primarily invested across office and retail in the UK and Ireland, weighted towards London, the South East and Dublin.

Form 1: Bartley Way Hook is one of their many properties and a unique development offering superbly well-connected accommodation in the M3 corridor. Form 1 offers high-quality office space over two floors with an impressive full-height reception and a communal ‘street’.

It was over the "street" we were employed by Area2 to design and build two internal tensile solar shade sails to help diffuse the solar gain and add some life to the atrium.

Our team delivered a turn-key solution involving; project management, 3D laser surveying, design, detailing, patterning, manufacture of both sails and brackets, and installation. The job was undertaken over two site days. The first visit being the bracket installation and survey, and the final visit being the sail installation.
