This extremely striking building features CGL anodised shingles, installed in landscape format and incorporating a flowing wrap-around pattern. The shingles were supplied in three different colours to create a dynamic surface break-up effect, further lending to this building’s unique appearance. This highly energetic design is a fitting look and perfectly matches the building’s function.
This project is located in Central London on Horseferry Parade, opposite the Government’s Home Office. It’s a very high quality residential building with prices on some of the apartments topping £5million, so the quality of the facades needed to be in keeping. We supplied our Hook-on Rainscreen in a bronze anodised finish, giving a dynamic contrast to the building’s existing stonework.
The design needed to incorporate projecting fin details, which were also supplied by us and designed to work with the system. The result is a truly stunning facade that will reflect the quality of this development for years to come.
3.Beal High School
This was a challenging but rewarding endeavour, featuring a large number of curved panels incorporated into the design. The system used here is a bold copper-look ACM Traypanel, which provides a great contrast to the predominantly white-painted school buildings.
This project is especially significant as this was our first installation job. Traditionally we have supplied our systems to contractors for installation, but Beal School saw us draw on the extensive installation experience of our parent company Merson Group to successfully reach previously uncharted territory. This project was hugely rewarding to work on, and we have since secured subsequent work from the Main Contractor following our performance on site.
Finished in a traditional bronze, this is an extension to the historic Camden Mortuary building in Central London. The results were a very high quality finish that compliments the adjacent older building well. These types of traditional finishes manufactured with modern processes are often dismissed due to their premium quality, however you will not find a product that will outlast these types of natural metals for lifespan.
This very unusual and challenging design uses our Extruclad system, a comprehensive and technologically advanced ventilated system. Manufactured from extruded aluminium, the material is anodised to extend lifespan and powder coated to Qualicoat specifications, a highly extensive powder coating standards process.
The particular design used here incorporates a feature that appears to break up the continuous zig-zag profile of the system, adding more visual appeal to the modern design. The facade is a very robust but also striking finish which will continue to perform effective weather protection for many years.
