Aliva UK has created an environmentally-friendly and visually stunning façade for the new £15m headquarters of Wrexham-based telephone answering firm Moneypenny. The UK leader in exterior and interior finishes, Aliva crafted a clean, crisp façade that wraps in unbroken lines around the curved exterior of the building.
5,000sqm of Aliva’s Termok8 insulated render system delivered a finish which will withstand the worst of the British weather, imperative in the building’s semi-rural location. The British Board of Agrement certified render was chosen for its excellent thermal insulation credentials. The render’s self-cleaning and anti-algae staining properties will also ensure the building maintains its pristine finish for years to come.
Aliva also provided 500sqm of their Alucovering aluminium cladding in an anodised bronze colour matched to the architect’s specifications. This was used to create window detailing which adds an extra dimension to the building’s external appearance.
AEW Architects selected Aliva to deliver every aspect of the façade design from panel layouts and window details, to the design of a bespoke façade fixing system for the building. The new headquarters will be able to accommodate 1,000 staff over three floors, allowing for Moneypenny’s planned business growth. The 10-acre plot includes nature trails, orchards and gardens, with the interior of the building featuring a treehouse meeting room and a ‘village pub’ for employees.
Phil Hepworth, Associate at AEW Architects said: “Aliva helped us achieve the effect we wanted for Moneypenny’s new Headquarters by providing a high quality self cleaning insulated render system that highlighted the smooth curves of the building and complimented its picturesque setting."
