Trespa Meteon TS200 mechanical secret fix (450m2). Integrated plenum boxes with aluminium louvres.

The award winning design presented a series of challenges to be overcome, where we had to adapt and develop a panel layout to suit both the window installation and the positioning of ventilation plenums and louvres and interfaces with several building elements. Thermal performance was enhanced with Kingspan Kooltherm insulation and proprietary rainscreen cavity barriers afford fire stopping within the rainscreen cavity.

The result was a striking, contemporary facade which won a Scottish Design Award (Health buildings) and was shortlisted for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award 2011.
