Norton Ellis Architects have recently finished re-cladding a mixed use building in Clerkenwell, London.
The original 1990’s aluminum cladding was dangerous as the stainless steel welded fixings had failed due to bi-metallic corrosion.
We replaced windows to the upper floors and fitted new polyester powder coated aluminum cladding.
Our original plan was to use composite aluminum cladding panels but due to the safety concerns of these products following the Grenfell Tower fire a solid aluminium alternative was chosen. The rest of the building has the original rendered finish.
