Downer Helping Hand framing offers a helping hand

OVERVIEW

DOWNER, OFFERS A HELPING HAND FOR ANS GLOBAL 

MOXY HOTEL


OUR ORIGINAL ALUMINIUM RAINSCREEN FRAMING, DOWNER, OFFERS A HELPING HAND FOR ANS GLOBAL


We’re really pleased to share this latest Downer framing projects, courtesy of our client ANS Global.


Working in conjunction with Jehu Group, ANS Global have been pivotal in developing this £8.65m boutique hotel in Bristol’s City Centre. They were instructed to create three separate living walls, two on the main brick façade, and one under a covered walkway. As you can see in the images.


Hidden beneath this impressive living wall facade, is Architectural Panel Solutions' aluminium rainscreen sub-structure framing system Downer – the original helping hand rainscreen framing system.


Specifically, our DCS031 helping hand brackets and rails.


IN THE WORDS OF ANS GLOBAL:

6,240 plants now thriving

Over the three living walls, 6,240 plants are now thriving and growing, bringing benefits for the local environment and the community. In fact, having something as unique and eye-catching as plants on or around your property has in some studies shown to increase real estate values by up to 20%.
