Landid builds Lego Porter

The joint venture between Landid and Brockton Capital has created a miniature version of its latest office development, The Porter Building, made entirely out of Lego bricks.

Created using thousands of Lego bricks and taking 75 hours in total to build, the Lego model is an exact replica of the 120,000 sq ft new build office building, which is the latest development from the Landid and Brockton Capital partnership.

The model was put together by Lego specialist Michael LeCount, who last year featured on a Channel 4 Lego documentary, and has been built to reflect the exact dimensions and features of both the interior and exterior of The Porter Building.

LeCount created the model from architectural drawings to include all five floors, the double height reception and communal roof terrace and added 47 miniature figures to bring the model to life.

The Lego model covers one square metre and takes four people to lift. It will be on display in the marketing suite of The Porter Building, which is due to complete in Q3 of this year.

Last year the Landid/Brockton partnership commissioned the Global Street Art collective to decorate the hoardings of The Porter Building site with an “Enchanted Forest” scene.

Chris Hiatt, Director at Landid, said: “The Lego model is absolutely brilliant. The time and effort that went into putting it together reflects the attention to detail that has gone into the design and construction of The Porter Building. We’re not your usual development company and our intention is to bring a bit of magic to Slough.

“When it opens later this year, The Porter Building will offer a fresh and dynamic work environment that meets the growing demand for high quality, well connected office buildings for the next generation of occupiers in the Thames Valley. It will be a workspace that is focused on employee well-being and will be unlike anything else Slough has to offer.”

The 110,000 sq ft Porter Building is directly opposite Slough train station, and was designed by architect TP Bennett.

CBRE and Knight Frank are the letting agents for The Porter Building.
