CGA have recently unveiled a design and build Facade works project at QMUL Whitechapel. The project Cladding is 5mm gauge aluminium panels, 1000mm wide and 4000mm tall. Designed, engineered and manufactured by Baileys UK Cladding specialist with design coordination by CGA on a D&B project.
The panels were hung off steel PFC primary framework that was tied back into the buildings ring beam at slab levels via pockets opened in the existing facade on cantilever Box sections. The Cladding rain screen is a bespoke design with only a hand full of manufacturers and anodising companies in the UK that can accommodate panels of this size.
The works also consisted replacement glass modules to existing window extrusions, full overhaul of spray paint finishes to all spandrel panels and window profiles, complete refurbishment of existing brickwork and staining.
