Cladding for student accommodation in Southampton
Vincent’s Walk is an elegant new accommodation development for 280 students by Victoria Hall Management Ltd in Central Southampton. Aquarian Cladding Systems worked closely with ArchitecturePLB, main contractor Galliford Try and specialist installer T&T Facades, as they made expert use of over 4000m2 of the companies Gebrik brick cladding system to provide exemplary aesthetics.
Selected from Aquarian’s Approved Installer Network, cladding specialist T&T Facades achieved deep window reveals and met the approved planning drawings – innovatively designing and installing a bespoke support system for the cladding. Will Bond of ArchitecturePLB said “‘The challenging programme steered the project towards a light-gauge steel frame solution but it was unable to take the loads of the proposed traditional masonry facades. Gebrik provided a light-weight alternative to traditional masonry that was delivered within the tight programme time for the main contractor.”
