CHARACTERISTICS Some 6,000m 2 of the rainscreen cladding were used in Warley's contract for refurbishment of the 19-storey 1960s block.
The company invested in new CNC equipment to run the job.
SPECIAL PROPERTIES An aluminium system was chosen as being light, exceptionally flat and working in tandem with the 500 Smart System windows. The lighter weight also meant that only one hoist was needed, rather than two, giving cost and time savings.
