Novum Structures ETFE facade system for the Hydro in Glasgow

Novum Structures ETFE facade system for the Hydro in Glasgow

Foster + Partners alongside main contractor Lend Lease delivered the £125m venue which opened its doors in October 2013. The building sports an entirely ETFE facade provided by integrated cladding specialist Novum Structures. The facade forms one of the largest examples of ETFE being used as a wall cladding structure rather than a roofing material to date. At night this enables the external envelope of the Hydro to morph into a giant, multi-coloured, illuminated screen displaying dazzling light shows to compliment the music concerts within.
