Skyline from Alumasc Chosen for Award-Winning O2 Building

Skyline from Alumasc Chosen for Award-Winning O2 Building

A unique aerofoil-shaped fascia soffit system from the Alumasc Skyline range has been used for the O2 UK headquarters in Slough.

Having already won a 2009 International Property Award and a UK Commercial Property Award for its stunning architecture, the striking new building, which forms part of a 200,000 sq ft campus, has now been short listed for the 2010 RIBA Awards South.

London-based architects, Nicholas Hare, invited Alumasc to assist with the design of the fascia and soffit system from the early stages. Alumasc produced a variety of CAD drawings, showing how the bespoke Skyline system would appear on different building elevations. The resulting nosed design has a pointed section supported by concealed webbed brackets. The nosing connects to sloping soffits in modular form which were made in 500mm wide sections so that the joint coincided with the mullions. Alumasc also worked closely with installer, S & J Roofing Ltd, to help achieve an excellent result from design stage to final fitting.

Skyline is the ideal fascia soffit choice for new build roof perimeters. Manufactured from high quality, polyester powder-coated aluminium, it is available in four bold generic shapes plus bespoke designs. As well as design versatility, Skyline offered many benefits to the project. It is lightweight, durable and totally weatherproof, making it easy to handle and fix with minimal maintenance requirements.

Alumasc is skilled at creating bespoke designs to meet individual project requirements, whether exact matching of rainwater products is required on restoration projects or providing stylish design solutions for new, contemporary buildings.

Levolux, also part of the The Alumasc Group plc, provided a bespoke Solar Shading solution for the O2 building, helping it to achieve a very good BREEAM rating and an EPC rating of B.
