Aliva hones edgy finish for new East London community building

Aliva UK has honed an edgy finish on a new community building that is already a landmark structure in the massive regeneration of East London’s Rathbone Market area. Aliva, experts in façades and interior finishes, met architect CZWG’s brief for a crisp look to complement other finishes on the project – delivering black polished ceramic granite for the London Borough of Newham’s new community building fronting Rathbone Market Square.

Aliva also provided a full design service for the façade system, including the backing structure. Aliva’s sub-grid consisted of extruded elements, and the horizontal carrier rail was finished in black polyester powder coating. The cladding tiles were braced and joined with hidden bracketry to meet the architect’s brief for precise, sharp angles into the large windows.

CZWG partner Adam West said "Aliva helped us achieve the effect we wanted by providing a thin, inherently strong material that enabled us to maintain the crisp geometries of the development. We were particularly pleased with the way Aliva considered the technical requirements for the cladding early on in the project".
