Uphill Road, London: External Concrete Cladding

About the Uphill Road, London: External Concrete Cladding Project

Our rainscreen system and concrete panels were used on this north London project.

The brief from the architect was to create a natural concrete look on this light weight structure building.

Contexture went ahead with all the necessary testing, including weight restrictions, and design for this project and came up with a perfect solution using our rainscreen system (with 150 mm of thermal insulation). Our 18 mm thick concrete panels were mechanically fixed in place with an invisible anchor system to create this stunning modern look of the building.

Goal of the project

To create a natural-looking concrete facade with cladding for these 2 modern buildings in the heart of London.

Techniques used in construction

We used glass-reinforced concrete (GRC) – of 20 mm panel thickness, which where installed using AGS system.

Challenges faced

Due to the terrain, this was one of the smaller projects where we had to use manpower throughout with a lot of scaffolding put in place for the installation of the panels.

Highlight of the project

After the project was complete and scaffolding removed, we saw the great results of the natural concrete cladding. The neighbors came out to take pictures of the amazing design and were in awe at the construction.

Type of cladding used

We used GRC 18mm standard 600×1200 concrete panels
