The redevelopment of a corner site at Old Street / Silicon Roundabout included a tower and low-rise buildings.
The end elevations carried large steel ventilation ducts which were to be clad in brickwork to replicate the appearance of the wet laid facades. To ensure safety and retention of the cladding over the building design life, the ducts were clad in the SafeSecure® system using slips cut from the same brick type.
STOP PRESS OCTOBER 2018: This project was shortlisted in the 2018 Brick Awards
The same wet laid appearance was achieved on the brick clad piers between the long window runs around the building.
