Buckinghamshire University Technical College (UTC) in Aylesbury required project constraints that demanded an intelligent, modern approach to construction. As with many education projects, the build-programme involved winter working and extremely short timescales. To add to the challenge, BAM’s start date was delayed by a further six weeks due to planning issues. Our Gebrik system enabled the contractor to take the external façade off the critical path, so that the building was weathertight as soon as the steel framing and external sheathing were installed.
To meet Sheffield-based Bond Bryan Architects’ brief, 1,000m2 of Gebrik panels and corners were factory-produced in a random mix of the Limeburn, Coppersmelt and Broken Bronze brick slip finishes and installed by LSC Facades within two months.
