London Road Student Accommodation in Brighton is nearing completion with the scaffolding now fully struck to reveal the external façade completed by Build-Therm Services. The design intent for the scheme was predominately based upon a traditional construction to which Build-Therm Services have managed to meet......
Curtain walling as an external wall solution is employed to achieve aesthetically high-end results and can be insulated to provide thermal efficiency and carbon savings. Traditionally fabricated from aluminium or stone and having fewer visible joins assists in establishing a seamless appearance.
Acting as a single unit benefits of using curtain walling include:
- High resistance to moisture
- Wind and structural shift resistance
- Thermal efficiency
- Faster installation than alternatives
Curtain Walling is a structurally independent and self-supporting system that can be easily maintained and removed without detriment to the overall buildings structure. The composition of the Window/Curtain Walling system spans multiple stories enabling speedy erection of the facade. This set-up enables a seamless finish achieving the most adventurous of architecture. With the envelope solution covering a large area, this is ideal for high-rise and high-end builds.
To provide the complete facade solution Build-Therm has also expanded its capabilities by providing Windows and Doors that can be fully integrated into the design of the build. Depending on the specifications of the project our in-house design team, work with our key supply chain to provide bespoke and innovative solutions. Including windows within your facade package, ensures the envelope of your build is resistant to all elements.
