NVELOPE supports new building at Repton School

NVELOPE supports new building at Repton School

Repton School

Building envelope contractor: B&K Building Services

NVELOPE, the rainscreen cladding support specialist has supplied its NV3 system to a new build Maths and PE teaching block at Repton School in Derbyshire. The 'Repton Precinct', which replaces an old demolished building, features cladding support by NVELOPE's NV3 concealed, mechanical fixing system.

Repton School, a co-educational English independent school, required the new two storey teaching block to mediate well between the award winning 400 Hall building, and the historic school buildings in the wider Repton campus. Derby-based main contractor B&K Building Services appointed specialist rainscreen installer A2O Cladding to install the rainscreen cladding on this project. A2O Cladding worked alongside the project architect Franklin Ellis Architects to develop the detailed design for approximately 400m² of Trespa Meteon and Aerolite vertical cladding. This included the specification of NVELOPE's NV3 system to support the rainscreen systems.

An original sandstone effect was achieved by installing TI Aerolite, while Trespa Meteon was used to create a more modern look. NVELOPE's NV3 versatile cladding support system was the ideal solution for this project, as the brackets bear the weight of the cladding, absorbing the dead loads and the wind loads, which allows for adequate expansion and contraction.

"We required a cost effective system which would neatly support the cladding, without disrupting the aesthetics of the building's envelope" says Tim Gray, Project Director, A2O Cladding. "The NV3 system allowed us to install the cladding with concealed fixing, giving the department a seamless finish whilst maintaining its stunning appearance."

This scheme utilised the NVELOPE online 'Project Builder' design and pricing service, which provides a complete, project specific cladding solution for architects with a very fast turnaround. The 'Project Builder' design and pricing software by NVELOPE can speed up the cladding specification process for contractors, providing them with a bracket layout and an indicative m2 rate to meet their precise requirements.

The NVELOPE materials used were manufactured from extruded aluminium alloys conforming to BS EN 573-3 and production BS EN 755.

NVELOPE supports new research centre

NVELOPE supports new research centre

The Centre for Virus Research
Building envelope contractor: Longworth

The design expertise and high quality support systems from NVELOPE, the rainscreen cladding specialist, have helped to provide The Centre for Virus Research with an aesthetically pleasing and state-of-the-art facility, which since completion, has achieved BREEAM Excellent status.

The Centre for Virus Research, a joint venture between the University of Glasgow and the Medical Research Council, was established in 2010. Two years later, Sheppard Robson Architects submitted plans for a facility at the University of Glasgow s Garscube campus. The aim of this £20 million project was to bring scientists researching viruses and viral diseases in humans and animals together under one roof. Haydock-based building envelope specialist, Longworth was the contractor for this project, and was responsible for specifying and installing the main façade. With the objective being to create an aesthetically pleasing end result, Longworth required a reliable cladding support system that would not disrupt the design of the façade.

" Having previously worked with NVELOPE and been impressed by the quality and affordability of its products, and the quick delivery it offers, we knew that NVELOPE was the right manufacturer for this project" commented Stephen Barrett, Commercial Director Longworth. "We once again made use of its project builder design service, as it provides us with accurate wind load calculations and pricing. We value this extra service, as it eliminates any surprises on-site."

Longworth specified NVELOPE' s NV 1 brackets and rail system to fix 1,500m² of copper cladding. The project, which required the new facility to link to the two existing buildings, took two years to complete. To check the workmanship and design performance of this project, the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT) conducted a rigorous test of the cladding against water resistance. The test achieved highest scores, which in turn proved the efficiency of the products used. On completion, the building was given a BREEAM Excellence status.

The NVELOPE online project builder design and pricing service provides a complete, project specific cladding solution for architects with a very fast turnaround. The project builder design and pricing software by NVELOPE can speed up the cladding specification process for contractors, providing them with a detailed design to meet their precise requirements. NVELOPE's NV1 flexible point brackets were well suited for this project as they allow for expansion and contraction of the cladding when under strain from various weather conditions including strong winds. The NVELOPE systems provide a secure fixing solution for façade materials including; high pressure laminate (HPL), timber, weatherboard, fibre cement, fibre concrete, ceramic, thin stone, aluminium composite material (ACM) and many other metals. They are available pre-assembled with thermal isolators to help reduce thermal bridging and also prevent a chemical reaction which could occur between the aluminium bracket and the line in a concrete frame. Stand-off sizes for the vertical range are from 40 – 300 mm.

NVELOPE holds extensive stock to ensure orders can always be met and where necessary, immediate delivery can be provided. All NVELOPE cladding systems can be engineered to project specific requirements thanks to the expertise of its technical design support service. This provides architects and specifiers freedom with an almost infinite range of façade appearance and layout options.
