Carea Façade

Location: Paris (FR)Architects: Fl. Bougnoux, J.-M. Fritz, D. Mangin, Seura architecture officeConstruction type: renovationInstallation system: wall cladding with backing structure (CWB)Product: VEGETALPhotographer: Michel RoyThe Seura architectural firm began discussions with the CAREA® design office in early 2006.Objective: to design and create a double-skin facade using cladding elements in vegetal patterns created from matrices made by Florence Bougnoux, in the “arts and crafts” spirit typical of the suburb’s craft businesses.The first phase of this collaboration between the architectural firm and CAREA® was the integration of the metal frame and cladding elements into the general construction plans of the building. This was followed by consultations on the development of the prototype facing which, among other things, had to form a continuous pattern when the elements were assembled; then the exact colour had to be agreed upon.The hotel facade was laid out in the second phase, including exact positioning of the inserts in accordance with the facing patterns. Careful work was therefore done upstream to anticipate and fine-tune the implementation suggestions: subtly treated chamfers and carefully executed angles, strictly in accordance with the pattern repeats and connections.This structure was therefore the first time the VEGETAL facing was used. It was custom-made for this occasion and is now available as part of the CAREA range of looks.

Liquasil Ltd

The asbestos cement roof to this industrial unit in Hereford was heavily contaminated with moss and lichen and was leaking in numerous places. The moss and other vegetation was first dampened down, scraped off and placed into designated asbestos waste bags for licensed disposal. The roof was then steam cleaned. All metal fixings were treated with Liquasil's rust primer and sealed with Non-Sag Sealer. Small holes and cracks were sealed with Non-Sag Sealer. The entire roof was then coated with Asbestsoeal 20 and is now resistant to moss growth and water leaks.
Domestic retro-fit green roof - Sydenham

Domestic retro-fit green roof - Sydenham

Wallbarn Ltd

The client desired a green roof at the back of this beautiful family home. Access was very restricted. The speed and ease of transporting and installing our modular trays meant minimum disruption for the homeowner. Trays were delivered to site on pallets and handballed to the roof. The modules were laid down onto a geotextile fabric. Pebbles were then laid around the perimeter between the trays and any outlets to provide the required firebreak. Vegetation blended quickly creating a seamless green roof and, looking out from the upper floors, a sense of continuity from the house across the garden.

The Bodmin Jail Hotel

The Bodmin Jail Hotel

VELUX Commercial

VELUX Glazing Panels bring daylight to an 18th century Cornish jail to support the transformation into a luxury hotelAll that was left of the powerful-looking Victorian Bodmin Jail in Cornwall, was a ruin without a roof, with vegetation slowly taking over. In 2015, Mallino Development appointed the services of Twelve Architects to undertake an impressive redevelopment project of the jail and turn it into a modern and aesthetically quite different hotel. To deliver the modern comforts hotel guests expect during their stay and the thermal efficiency required for sustainable operation of the hotel, a holistic system using VELUX Glazing Panels was designed. It took 214 VELUX Glazing Panels, formerly known as Vitral A98 Glazing, to recapture the original roof lighting sitting above the two historic wings.For more information, read the full case study

Air Curtains Seal Natures Way Foods’ Chill Store

Air Curtains Seal Natures Way Foods’ Chill Store

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains recently sealed the doorway of a salad store at Natures Way Foods in Chichester with a chill store air curtain. The units help maintain the required 2°C temperature inside the cold store by creating a curtain of ambient air over the opening, keeping the chilled air inside, whilst providing unhindered access and visibility for the forklifts.The company previously used fast acting electric doors with plastic slat curtains but with the doors open the temperature near the doorway was rising to 8°C. In addition, the plastic curtains quickly became dirty and scratched and obstructed the vision of the forklift drivers.Sean Burns, Services Manager at Natures Way Foods commented, “We were using electric doors but wanted to have better access and visibility for the forklifts. We also had heat spots near the door and were getting about 8°C with the door open. However, without the door and with the air curtains installed we are now maintaining 2°C, even right next to the doorway in the summer.“Since seeing how effective the air curtains are at sealing the entrance, I’ve ordered two more for a chill store at our Passion Food Café facility in Portsmouth.”By installing air curtains on chill store doorways energy efficiency is also improved. Fridges and freezers waste a great deal of energy every time the doors open. Warm air flows in and refrigerated air flows out. By having a curtain of ambient air blasted down across the doorway the cold air is not allowed to escape ensuring temperature and humidity remain consistent.Natures Way Foods prepares over 12 billion salad leaves per year and supplies salads and prepared vegetables to clients that include Tescos, MacDonalds, Pizza Express and Morrisons.

Wood Finish suits sustainable construction, Milton Keynes

Wood Finish suits sustainable construction, Milton Keynes

Powdertech (Corby) Ltd

Powdertech Wood Finish (Roughwood R047) is being used for a prestigious sustainable logistics development in Milton Keynes, built by Glencar Construction for client Baytree Logistics, a pan-European company. BREEAM has specified the development scheme as “Excellent”. It is also “WELL” ready – the WELL Building Standard is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on sustainability, human health and wellbeing. The building, on a 10.4-acre site at Fenny Lock, will feature the latest in technology-enabled sustainable design features providing an environment beneficial to the health and wellbeing of the building users. Wherever possible, “Cradle to Cradle” (circular economy) principles have been adopted meaning that materials used can be repurposed in the future, being returned into the construction cycle for re-manufacture with no detriment to quality.The Benefits of Powdertech Wood FinishWood Finish on aluminium fits this approach perfectly. Aluminium itself is endlessly recyclable and our powder coatings do not affect the process. The finish can be removed, and the metal returned to its original bare state. Powder coatings are also free of VOCs, halogens and heavy metals – all compounds which are damaging to health. We are very pleased that the sustainability of Wood Finish on aluminium, and the ‘clean’ qualities of the product have been recognised as such. It is also the case that the use of Wood Finish on external features is in harmony with the aesthetics of the building design.Wellbeing for people and planetRoof garden terraces, and onsite water attenuation form part of a sustainable drainage system which includes harvesting of rainwater for re-use on site. Wood Finish in Roughwood shade R047 has been used to coat eleven enormous aluminium drainpipes which form part of this scheme; they stand 13m high with a 600mm x 600mm top section tapering to 150mm square at the ground. The scheme also includes outdoor gyms and training areas, edible vegetation and reclaimed timber seating. Internally, sensors constantly monitor air and water quality.Baytree intend that this should be one of the most sustainable logistics developments ever built in the UK and we are very excited to be a part of this ambition.
JK House

JK House

Elefant Gratings T/A PcP Gratings Ltd

The JK House project is a privately initiated development of a villa in the Bezuidenhout area of The Hague. The architect responsible for this project is Jacco van Wengerden from Atelier van Wengerden, located in Amsterdam. The unusual location of the site, surrounded by buildings erected in the 1930s, required balanced choices in the materials used for the façade. Furthermore, the villa's design needed to meet the conservative demands of the local aesthetics committee The Hague municipality and tying in with the adjacent buildings. The architect, Van Wengerden, immediately realised the potential of the site. By making the right choice of materials for the façade, he could refer to the former garden centre on this location and the colour and structure of the brickwork of the adjacent buildings. The SolutionIn his quest to find the right materials for JK House’s unique façade, Van Wengerden decided to use COR-TEN steel MESH® gratings in his design. Although these gratings are originally designed for industrial flooring, this particular choice of material would solve several issues at once. Firstly, COR-TEN steel gratings are relatively affordable. Secondly, they fit perfectly into the existing surroundings and refer to the site's past. The local aesthetics committee of The Hague municipality was pleased with the choice of this material. Especially by the fact that a COR-TEN steel façade was perfect for allowing vegetation to grow on, which is another reference to the history of the site. Trying to find a supplier for this façade, Van Wengerden approached PCP's local office in the Netherlands. Since PcP could produce these gratings in a wide variety of dimensions in both bearing and filler bars, Van Wengerden could design the gratings to match his initial idea of vertical lines in the appearance of the façade.For a more vivid look, PcP produced gratings with dimensions between the vertical bearing bars of both 44 and 55mm, where the filler bars were spaced 150mm in between. In addition, the gratings were mounted backwards, leaving only the bearing bars visible. Despite making production more challenging, the desire was also to have no edge bars on the top side of the gratings for a more open appearance, and PcP was able to deliver this. The result is a Villa with a façade that, in time, due to the natural process of the rust-brown colouring of the COR-TEN steel, will be at one with its surrounding buildings. The Collaboration The first contact about the project was established in early 2015. Over a period of several years, Van Wengerden and PcP discussed options and difficulties in manufacturing the façade. After making design choices, we produced samples to visualise the choice of mesh sizes and discolouration of the COR-TEN steel. We completed the project at the beginning of 2019.
Mobilane Essenza Home Living wall

Mobilane Essenza Home Living wall

Mobilane

ESSENZA HOME opts for a sustainable green façadeInterior and lifestyle brand ESSENZA HOME has moved into a new, completely renovated office in Bunnik in 2021. The new office is entirely sustainability-oriented. The Mobilane green façade at Essenza Home contributes to the company’s sustainability vision and provides a warm welcome for its retailers, customers, and staff. Family business ESSENZA HOME has been designing, producing, and distributing home & living products to suit various interior styles for 60 years. In 2021, the company moved to a new office in Bunnik. The building of no less than 2500 m2 is located directly on the A12 motorway. The new premises was built with an eye to the future and aligned with their sustainability vision. Therefore, the sustainable green Mobilane façade was a logical choice.Installation of the green façadeThe installation of the green walls was quick and easy. The green walls, with a total surface area of over 200 square meters, were placed against the stone and wooden façade by means of Magnelis steel omega profiles. The design incorporated the window and door sections and the water and electricity pipes.The almost 10,000 plants are installed in modular cassettes and pixels attached to the profiles. All of the cassettes, pixels, and covers are made of a fire-retardant EPP (B-s2, d0). This material is light, UV-resistant, air-permeable (for good root growth), and fully recyclable. An automated irrigation system provides the MobiPanel green walls with water and nutrients.Plant selection for the green façadeThe plants in the green facades were selected according to various factors. The orientation of the façade, the different flowering seasons, plants that stimulate biodiversity, and, finally, aesthetics were all considered. For example, Bregenis ‘Bressingham White’ is a beautiful spring bloomer with elegant white flowers that bloom from April onwards. The Vinca minor is a strong evergreen covering plant. It also flowers very early in spring. Vinca minor can be used on facades in both sunny and shady spots. The Vinca will produce more flowers in the sun than in the shade. Geranium Rozanne is a carrier plant for wild bees. Many species of wild bees, as well as butterflies and bumblebees, find their nectar here.Advantages of the green façadeThe green wall on the two outer walls is a real eye-catcher. Floor Smits, Head of Brands and second generation in the family business: “As a family business, we find it important to focus on the long term. During the renovation, we, therefore, invested heavily in sustainable solutions. When we were introduced to the possibility of a vertical garden for the façade, we were immediately enthusiastic. The green wall has many advantages, such as purifying the air, increasing biodiversity, and providing a nice haven for bees and other insects. Finally, we want to make a statement and show that we are committed to a sustainable world.” In addition to the office, there is also a b2b showroom and a brand store will be opened for consumers this year.Increased biodiversityRosalie Smits, Head of Channels and also the second generation of the family business, indicates that biodiversity is an important spearhead for the organization.The green façade attracts many insects, thus stimulating biodiversity in the area. As described earlier, the flowers of Geranium Rozanne, among others, provide nectar for many insects such as the wild bee and butterflies. Wild bees and butterflies are an important link in our food chain. They provide 60% of the pollination of our fruit and vegetables.The facades also attract various birds and other insects and serve both as food and as nesting and hiding places. In the cassettes between the plants, birds can nest safely. The first bird’s nest in the green façade at Essenza Home was found just a few weeks after installation.Client: ESSENZA HOMEArchitect: BK PuntConstruction period: 2021Installation: MobiCare
Condair Humidifies Polestar Sheffield

Condair Humidifies Polestar Sheffield

Condair Limited

A Condair ML Solo high pressure humidification system has been installed in the litho platemaking area at Polestar print company’s award-winning plant in Sheffield. Designed to suppress and disperse electrostatic charges when protective film is removed from the plates, Condair’s low-energy humidifier maintains a relative humidity of 45% in the area. The project was carried out by Cambridgeshire-based HVAC and process engineering specialist, Arcade.Polestar Sheffield produces 2.5 million high-quality catalogues, magazines, brochures and newspaper supplements every day. Part of Polestar Group, the company produces many well-known titles including Cosmopolitan, Radio Times, Woman’s Own, Country Life and many Sunday newspaper supplements.With a strong focus on printing excellence and productivity at Polestar, the new humidifier installation provides an effective solution to the problem of electrostatic charge generation when protective paper is removed from the litho plates. By reducing and dissipating the electrostatic charge, the paper and plates are easier to handle, it prevents the attraction of dust and reduces the risk of spark generation. The Condair ML humidifier delivers ultrafine sprays directly into the air, which rapidly evaporate to maintain a relative humidity of 45%RH, the level required to counter the effects of static electricity.Joss Williams, Arcade’s Senior Project Manager, said, “The humidifier meets Polestar’s requirements and the customer is happy. Previous experience of Condair as JS Humidifiers has been good”. When it came to this installation, the versatility of the system and working knowledge of the installation team proved important. Joss Williams continues, “The guys that attended site changed the design to suit the site location with no issues in relation to price. The installation was of a high standard and looks good”.The Condair ML Solo is a low energy, cold water spray humidifier, requiring just 5% of the energy used by equivalent steam humidifiers. This fits well with Polestar’s strong environmental credentials, which seek to minimise its impact on the environment through initiatives such as recycling and wastewater management.Ten spray heads are located in the platemaking area, with a capacity to deliver up to 48 litres of pure, demineralised water into the air each hour. Effective moisture distribution is ensured from the twin jets on each ML Solo unit by a low energy, low noise fan. Operating in complete safety at 70bar, the jets are fed with mineral-free water produced centrally by a Condair MLPRO100 pump and reverse osmosis treatment station. The system features a stainless steel, oil-free, high-pressure pump, RO water purification and UV water sterilisation, so low maintenance and pure, hygienic sprays are guaranteed. Pipework is in stainless steel and high grade corrosion-free flexible hoses.Arcade’s work at Polestar Sheffield has included the installation of two chillers, inverter-controlled chilled water pumps, pumping stations, tanks and over 3km of stainless steel pipework, with Condair undertaking the installation of the humidification system on behalf of Arcade.Condair’s ML Solo humidifier is widely used in the printing industry around the world, particularly in paper storage, press halls and print finishing. An environment of 45-55%RH effectively deals with problems caused by dry air such as tight edges, paper curl, misfeed and web breaks, and effectively disperses ‘static and dust. In an industry where temperatures can get high, the cold water humidifier also offers the benefit of free cooling - up to 33kW from a system like the one at Polestar. It is also widely used for humidification and evaporative cooling in many other industrial applications such as woodworking and textiles, commercially in horticulture, in applications such as supermarkets to maintain the quality of fresh vegetables, and in offices.The spray head operation is virtually silent, introduces no dust to the atmosphere, is hygienic and requires only infrequent and straightforward maintenance. With a choice of colours, jet configuration and outputs, with adjustable brackets for directional orientation, they can be ceiling- or wall-mounted and suit many situations.
