Commercial Roofing and Façades provided a full roofing and facade package including the design, supply and installation. The complete roofing package utilised the Kingspan TopDek Composite System with Sika-Trocal membrane. This product was recommended due to its superior weathertightness, thermal performance, airtightness, fire performance and structural performance. We also installed Brett Martin ‘Marvault’ polycarbonate rooflights together with a full arrest man-safe system for future roof maintenance. The facade comprised of 240mm Eurobond Rainspan panels. Rainspan panels provide the perfect structural support for all 3 rainscreen systems utilised, combining ease and speed of installation to achieve a weathertight building envelope early on in the build programme. In line with the corporate image of Next retail units; their preferred choice of façade materials consist of Granite and Jurastone Cladding and Corium brick slips to provide the unique look. The stone being imported from Germany is cut and honed to create a smooth natural finish with factory pre-made corners . The Corium brick slip tiles from Taylor Maxwell added the traditional feel to this modern build. Both elements framed in a distinctive aluminium flashing detail. The façade to rear elevations was complimented by Booth Muirie ACM Panels. These interconnecting panels gave a sharp defined contrast to the natural products used.
This impressive retail unit presented us with some design challenges with Eurobond panels arriving on site already fabricated to size, which meant our design team played an important role in making sure everything fitted together seamlessly. Our site team management and installation team were commended on the quality and speed of installation. All program dates were met and following a smooth handover the client was able to occupy as planned.
