Hallsville Quarter Case Study
Aquarian was initially approached by Bouygues’ design team, who wanted to achieve a brickwork façade using mast climbers. They quickly identifed that Gebrik would allow the brick cladding to be incorporated within other trades using mechanical access, enabling a quicker build programme without the need for scaffolding. Gebrik’s BBA certifcation also
ensured warranty provider NHBC would approve its use, provided the entire build-up met specifc condensation risk analysis fgures in line with BS5250:2002 - but with NHBC parameters.
“We believed Gebrik installation would be generally easier than brickwork,” explains Guillame Simon, Project Manager for
Bouygues UK, “as its installation is typically less affected by weather conditions, it needs less storage and load space on site
than brick, and can be installed safely from mast climbers. Its adaptability also made it possible to coordinate with GRC features, which would have been diffcult using traditional brick.
