Maple install cassette-based climate façade ‘plant screen’ at leading university
Working closely with HLM Architects and main contractor Bouygues UK, we installed plant louvres to the main buildings and stairways to provide clean airflow but protect people and machinery from rain ingress and direct sunlight.
We also faced the challenge of cloaking the car park with a finish that was sympathetic to the neighbouring conservation area but was also effective in cutting out noise.
The solution was to use our own Corona climate façades, a cassette-based system chosen for ease of installation. Vertical fins were installed with rear blanking panels, which were manufactured in accordance to BS1474 and insulated to reduce sound by 24 decibels in accordance with the contractor’s specifications.
The vertical fin system throughout the project was powder coated and zinc primed for weather durability.
