Project Description

The new corporate headquarters for Mellon Bank comprises offices and a trading floor, and is located on the site of the former Times Newspaper Headquarters in Queen Victoria Street. The site falls within one of the designated Strategic View Corridors, intended to protect long distance views of St Paul's Cathedral and the roof terrace provides the perfect place for employees to meet, relax and enjoy the great views.

Buzon were specified to supply and install 20mm external porcelain tiles on BC-FR class B fire-rated adjustable pedestals on the roof terrace and access stairwell, along with fire-rated spacer tabs and shims.

Existing aluminium steps dictated the starting level of the porcelain terrace, which meets the perimeter balustrade on the other side.  The terrace had to be laid to 3% fall in order to meet the regulatory height for the balustrade.   This was achieved by using the BC-FR slope correction accessory, and using our smallest BC-FR model, BC-0-FR, to fit the tapered void at its lowest level.



Buzon UK has been a key partner to Domus for many years. Mike and his team have always been very supportive, offering us the most modern and technically proficient pedestal systems available. Their expertise in sub-floor systems and installation allows us to support our Architectural and Contractor partners to the very best of our ability.

Anthony Wrinch, Sales Director

I have known Mike personally and his professional team of installers at Buzon UK for over 12 years.  They make light work of problems and are a solution driven firm who I trust implicitly to deliver the quality my clients expect.  I would recommend Mike and his team at Buzon UK, as I regularly do, in a heartbeat.

Scott Faulks, Managing Director
Arena Stone and Ceramics Ltd

Mike and the team from Buzon UK are highly professional, creative and knowledgeable. After discussing the requirements of our brief, they helped us detail and present a robust paving solution for a high-end public realm landscape installation, using outdoor ceramic tiles with a support system of ALUrail and Buzon pedestals.  Buzon's system is, in my opinion, one of the most impressive on the market.
