Refurbishment of 1960’s style concrete framed office building to 125 room hotel consisting of 550m2 of Trepsa TS200 mechanical secret fix and a further 150m2 of Trespa Meteon face fixed to concealed elevations.

Working in conjunction with the Main Contractor and project architect from design stage, AJ Cladding’s alternative value engineering proposals were utilised, thus permitting the main contractor to utilise their expertise in timber kit construction and provide a backup wall which delivered the appearance and performance required and meet the budgetary constraints.

The rainscreen facade incorporates flush fitting curtain walling, LED light boxes and an innovative solution by AJ Cladding where the feature flashings at floor slab doubles up as a rainscreen cavity barrier thereby satisfying building regulations whilst maintaining the functionality of the rainscreen system.
