Euroclad have helped transform former Cadbury’s chocolate factory in Somerset into a luxury retirement village.
The £60 million redevelopment scheme has been reopened as ‘The Chocolate Quarter’ retirement village.
Euroclad’s Vieo warm and cold roof and wall systems were used to contrast with the existing red brickwork, modernising the buildings without losing their iconic look.
Vieo systems can be applied to roofs and walls, they are designed for application on a range of buildings and offer enhanced thermal and acoustic performance with the Vieo warm system which consists of RocSlab insulation.
8000m² of Vieo cladding was installed giving the roof an exceptional U-value of just 0.13W/m2K, with a 0.9mm gauge VieoZinc profile, as specified by the architect.
A lightweight and cost-effective alternative to traditional zinc roofing, VieoZinc is an aluminium material featuring a zinc-rich coating which is specially designed to weather in a similar way to zinc and change colour over time.
