Kingframe brings new vitality to Bury development

Kingframe brings new vitality to Bury development

The Rock, a landmark development in Bury, has used the Kingframe SFS extensively to provide the highly detailed external finish to all blocks.

The £350 million development brings new vitality back to a run-down area of Bury town centre thanks to the pleasing aesthetic achieved by architects BDP in the Kingframe system.

Main contractor Laing O’Rourke specified Kingframe SFS thanks to the possibilities afforded by the bespoke design services offered by the in house team and the ease and speed of onsite installation.

In addition to the infill framing provided to the residential blocks, Kingspan Steel Building Solutions also designed large complex oversail systems with a series of made to measure bracket supports to restrain the system back to the primary steel and concrete structural frames.

Kingspan’s engineering and design teams worked closely with the wider project team to ensure a consistent, workable and integrated approach to the façade support systems across all blocks in the tight timescales demanded by the programme.
