Architects: Slough panels 210m² rainscreen panels 2,200m² half-round cladding profile 5,750m² of roof and wall liner

This mixed office and manufacturing development was designed by Slough Estates. It features a steel rainscreen panel system on the front facades between ribbon windows with half-round profiled cladding on the other elevations. Both the panels and profile are coated in PVF2, metallic silver. This project was the first project in the UK to feature this new panel system, which had previously been proven in use in Scandinavia. It also shows very successfully the integration of two compatible, but not easily interfaceable, cladding systems. By combining these two systems a very stylish, yet competitive building was achieved.
