SHEETING AND CLADDING
Project: Thatcher’s Cider Warehouse 2
SIZEABLE NEW WAREHOUSE SCHEME PLUS ENVIRONMENTALLY-CONSIDERATE EXTENSION
This project was the second phase of works to facilitate a new high-bay robotic-storage system. This phase comprised 124 metre long aluminium standing-seam sheets on the roof and composite panels installed horizontally on the walls.
The roof consisted of two build ups, one of which had ROCKWOOL slab insulation to ensure office space was appropriately soundproofed. The aluminium standing-seam sheets were rolled on the ground and then carried along a specially designed, 34 metre long scaffold platform from ground floor to the roof level to be installed. Where the original warehouse was extended, the contractor removed, numbered and protected each of the original composite panels and installed them onto the new structure to save them from being sent to landfill. The contractor on this project also undertook the role of principal contractor.
