The Horbury Group are proud to be associated with such a prestigious development. The Horbury Group were responsible for the design, manufacture and installation of a number of rainscreen systems to the 4 blocks and the associated accommodation block on Gill Street. Block A comprised of a high gloss finished aluminium composite material secret fixed rainscreen panels, the associated fire barriers and weathering  details, large picture frame rainscreen panel features all adhesive bonded to a bespoke designed sub frame, adhesive bonded Rockpanel to the lower podium areas, parapet copings, rockpanel soffits PPC feature flashings and  a large horizontal feature louvre to the roof. The complicated geometric panel shapes required substantial design and detailing to ensure that fabrication of the panels suited the very tight  installation tolerances on site. Blocks B and C comprised of the adhesive fixing of rockpanel rainscreen, terracotta rainscreen, the associated fire barriers and weathering  details, large picture frame rainscreen panel feature surrounds all adhesive bonded to a bespoke designed sub frame, parapet copings, soffits, and PPC feature flashings. Block D comprised the installation of aluminium composite material secret fixed rainscreen cassette panels, feature louvres and capping's. The shear size of the project presented  design, logistic and build problems that working collaboratively we were able to overcome. We worked closely with Church Lucas Architects ( Nottingham) to ensure the delivery of this very prestigious project.
