Project: Shakespeare House
Location: Hackney, London
Building envelope contractor: Paneltec Services Ltd.
NVELOPE NV1 vertical cladding support systems have been installed on a newly refurbished apartment block in Hackney to provide an attractive external envelope that regenerates the area.
Shakespeare House has been transformed from a low quality housing block into eighteen modern apartments. Redesigned to create spacious living areas, the building has been completely insulated to improve energy. Bptw Architecture, aimed to add a contemporary feel to the housing, and decided to overclad the building with an attractive Corium brick cladding system. To enable them to do so, a versatile cladding support system was required. The building was extended to provide a fourth floor, constructed from a light steel frame. Having worked with NVELOPE previously, Paneltec Services Ltd, specialist envelope contractor, immediately specified its NV1 vertical system for this 800m² building.
NVELOPEs NV1 system is designed for concealed fix and structural bonding applications. The NV1 system was the ideal choice for this project as it allows for expansion and contraction of the cladding when under strain from various weather conditions including strong winds. The NV ranges provides a secure fixing solution for façade materials including high pressure laminate (HPL), timber, weatherboard, fibre cement, fibre concrete, ceramic, thin stone, aluminium composite material (ACM) and many other metals.
