Lacoste 8-Brompton Road-Bespoke Drywall

Bespoke Drywall installed 400 sq m of ceilings and 500 sq m of drywall using Speedline metal frame and Gyproc plasterboard supplied by CPD. Bespoke’s seven week package required careful co-ordination with other trades to ensure that the works were completed on schedule and to the highest standard.

A programme critical pinch point centred on the ground and first floor ceilings where the ceiling void acted as a plenum to circulate air around the store. The striking straight line ceiling design also carried the product lighting within the higher level element of the ceiling coffers.

Main contractor for the fit out was DG Professional Interiors and the architect was DesignLSM.
