In Edinburgh’s centrally located Exchange District, 2 Semple Street offers six floors of Grade A office space. With an impressive and sustainable specification, the building boasts EPC 'A' and BREEAM 'Very Good' ratings.

SAS International was chosen by Michael Laird Architects due to a previous working relationship and collaborative team approach to design and fit-out. SAS delivered 2558m2 of sustainable ceiling solutions through the office space.

Offering design flexibility, the popular SAS330 was specified for the main office floorplates. The 1200mm lay-in tiles and bespoke 200mm C-Profiles were formed to dedicated sizes and allowed the team to maintain a full tile layout throughout. Perimeter services were installed at full tile replacements and at a 45 degree angle for a clean finish.

For the reception area, SAS600 feature rafts had an oblong perforation that oversailed the tile edges. In the basement corridors, SAS720 provided a slatted effect and a unique perimeter solution. This linear ‘plank’ system reduced the construction depth and will allow easy access and replacement in a tight void space.

With this prime city centre office offering prospective tenants an exceptional specification throughout, SAS International has once again provided high performance ceiling systems that make the grade for cutting edge commercial office buildings.
