CRL Facades installed the facade finishes for Buxton Building Contractors Ltd on this private development which comprises private offices and apartments.

Scope of Works:

  • Epsitec external wall insulation system supplied by Wetherby Building Systems
  • Rainscreen copper cladding

The site occupies a corner plot of land which curves around the external corner.
To maximize the available space the building ‘wraps around’ the corner in a series of steps, incorporating balconies into each change of direction. The planning constraint was for the building to appear all render from the front and all copper from the side as if the building was square. This posed considerable interface detail problems between render, copper and balcony surfaces which were successfully overcome.

A very high thermal performance of 0.23W/m2K was achieved using the Epsitec external wall insulation system incorporating 40 mm insulation and silicone render onto a steel frame using drainage cavities. Sun facing balconies were finished in render and rainscreen copper cladding as a major feature.

For this project CRL Facades won the 2007 Andy Swan Award sponsored by INCA which recognizes the best use of insulated renders in commercial and public buildings.
