Everest Park is a major development of chic apartments and sumptuous family homes built by Taylor Wimpey in Basingstoke. The scheme required a professional parapet capping solution that delivered a sleek aesthetic and robust weather-proofing performance. A labour saving installation and low long-term maintenance were also essential criteria for this project.
For this reason, the buyer for the site switched from the specified Zinc clad capping to a pioneering Aluminium capping system developed by fabrication specialists Contour Casings. The Contour system has also been adopted by Taylor Wimpeys new Reflections development in Romford, Essex.
Peter Yeung, Buyer for Taylor Wimpey, said, The Zinc clad capping was labour intensive and costly compared to Contours Aluminium product. As the Contour system is manufactured in-house, the build quality and finish is far superior to what is achievable on site. The ease of installation was also a factor. We will specify the new system on other projects in the future.
The Contour capping system incorporates a number of unique features to combine a professional facade with an extremely durable performance, including:
Snap-on design allows you to increase installation efficiency and reduce costs
12 15 lead time from approval of drawings
Independently wind tested up to 144mph
Weather-proofing gaskets prevent water ingress and drain water away, reducing long-term maintenance
Secret fix system removes all obtrusive fixings yielding a superior finish
Corrosion resistance is delivered by the all-Aluminium components
Anti-rattle pads benefit both the contractor and building occupant
Standard and bespoke sections available in a range of colours
