Project Type: Special Projects Fire Damage
Round House is a privately owned building in Gunwharf Quays operating in the private rental sector. Following a fire, two apartments were gutted and the fire broke out through the 4th and 5th floor windows and doors. The Sto-Render cladding with EPS insulation though performed well needed complete rebuild.
Facade Fix Proposal
Safety is paramount and despite the existing facade performing as it should and keeping the fire compartmentalised we still needed to remove and reinstate 4 different cladding and window systems. Including Reynaers doors, Kawneer windows, Sto-Render and aluminium bespoke cladding panels. With several families in temporary accommodation and mounting costs time was a key driving factor to completion. Matching the existing colours which had faded was a problem so we proposed renewal with contrasting colours to create a feature area.
