|Project||Bransholme Health Centre|
|Location||Hull, East Yorkshire|
|Project value||£14.7 m|
|Main contractor||Ash & Lacy Building Systems|
|Subcontractor||Sewell Group and Speedclad|
|CAB member||Powdertech (Corby)
|Powder Coating System||Polyester powder coat (Valspar)|
|Aluminium System||1600m2 of rainscreen panels in 2mm and 3mm aluminium|
Rainscreen panels were coated in seven different colours and supplied direct to the site from Powdertech. To meet the build schedule and simplify logistics the panels were delivered in ‘site-ready’ batches. The result is a strikingly impressive community building on the Bransholme Housing Estate, occupied by eight GP practices, a minor injuries unit and Hull City Council’s Customer Service Centre.
The application process complies with ISO12206 & BS6496 using architectural Qualicoat class 1 polyester powders. Colours are consistent between batches and can be closely matched such that if a panel is damaged during installation it can be replaced without spoiling the overall appearance.
