Amber Valley Stone meet design requirements for Northshore Innovation Centre

In 2014, Amber Valley Stone was appointed by Esh Build to design and deliver exposed architectural precast concrete cladding panels for the exterior of the state-of-the-art Northshore Innovation Centre in Stockton on Tees, a 36,000 ft2 building for SMEs and new business start-ups in the digital, scientific and creative sectors.

AVS helped in developing the detailing and fixing methods of the panels to achieve the overall design intent, whilst maintaining a buildable solution for the site team.

The design, which reflects the centre’s modernity and innovation, required a material that was both durable and appealing. AVS produced a clean, contemporary finish using a pigmented precast concrete to achieve a stunning finish. The acid-etched cladding was produced with Spanish Dolomite fine aggregate to create sparkle when light catches the surface.

The project required 160 panels consisting of plinth units, spandrels, mullions and large gable end panels ranging from 1.5T to 5T with the largest panels being 6m x 2.5m; all manufactured over a 13 week period.
