Regeneration Project – King St Link, South Shields
Project: Manufacture and installation of 200m2 of oversized bespoke GRC GAP wall panels.
Client: Harris Partnership Architects, Kirkland & Bowmer, Muse Developments, Nexus, STC
Project scope: Installation of 200m2 of 20mm x 3500mm x 1500mm GRC BTX concrete wall cladding panels in Tempest Grey colour to new and existing masonry walls and steel frame.
The oversized bespoke GAP concrete panels with mitred edges were manufactured using GRC concrete, which is lighter and stronger than traditional concrete.
The panels were fixed with anchor bolts and specialist adhesive to ensure extra secure installation and later polished and treated with specialist anti-graffiti coating.
