Cladding Updates MAKING

Cladding Updates MAKING AN ENTRANCE! Skyline Fascia, Soffits and Copings – part of Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AWMS) – has supplied bespoke window and door surrounds to create a striking new entrance and frontage for a major office refurbishment in Spitalfields, London. For further info on all these cladding updates and more, visit www.total-contractor.co.uk The project, known as 45 Folegate Street, was led by Tatehindle Architects, who worked closely with contractor Tetraclad to install the new window and door surrounds. Matt Swaffer, Tetraclad Contracts Director, explained: “The drawings requested an aluminium cladding panel which included specific detailing. I was tempted to steer away from it at first as I had never attempted anything like it before. Some of this detailing was quite complex but I knew Skyline would produce good fabrication drawings – a service which other manufacturers don’t offer. It worked out very well.” www.alumascskyline.co.uk “SOME OF THIS DETAILING WAS QUITE COMPLEX BUT I KNEW SKYLINE WOULD PRODUCE GOOD FABRICATION DRAWINGS” AHEAD OF THE CURVE Contour North and South, two luxury housing projects located just off Chircombe Lane near the river Torridge in Bideford, Devon, have utilised Catnic’s SSR² roof because of its aesthetic appeal and performance capabilities. Due to the buildings’ unique curved roof design, Catnic manufactured bespoke curved panels to ensure an easy to assemble and flexible installation. Martin Riley, Director at Building Firm Riley & Guy explained: “The SSR² system is extremely flexible in its design, however we had to ensure that the panels fitted the curvature of the buildings without distorting them.” www.catnic.com SCREEN STAR Black Mountain has launched a new video which opens with the image – and sound – of crackling flames, thereby vividly alluding to the purpose and the performance of its Magply, Euroclass A1 and non-combustible Fire Protection Boards. The manufacturer says it has made the film to emphasize Magply’s superiority over other manufacturers’ boards, in terms of its strength, breathability and low carbon footprint and crucially its low chloride content which negates any moisture related problems. Importantly, to ensure low chloride content in the manufacturing process, Magply is air dried. www.magply.co.uk/video BRONZE AGE The £57m new Emily Wilding Davison Building at Royal Holloway, University of London’s Egham campus, has been clad using Proteus HR TECU Bronze materials. The east side of the striking 10,000m² building, which expands the university’s library provision, now features the beautiful brown-red to brown-grey and ochre tones of Proteus HR’s TECU Bronze cladding panels. The main contractor was Osborne and the Proteus HR TECU Bronze cladding panels were installed by Colorminium who worked with Associated Architects and Proteus Facades during the process. www.proteusfacades.com 60 TC MARCH 2018
