Project Overview

A £200,00 contract was awarded to ARM Buildings to supply and install specialist wall panels for this major residential and commercial re-development scheme in the heart of Manchester.
The £6 million project in Great Ducie Street involves the renovation of an existing mill, previously a Rolls Royce showroom, and the addition of a new structure to form an L-shaped block, known as the Beaumont Building.  It will provide a retail area and six floors of stylish apartments.

Technologies

  • Laminated closed cell panel construction.

  • Thermally efficient and airtight.

  • External cladding – Rainscreen, vertical tile system and flat stainless steel.

  • Reduced site erection times, using ARM’s “Design Build” laminated panel systems.

  • Replace the need for brick/block walls – reduce wet-trades.

  • Rapid dry envelope.

Review and Comment

“ARM Buildings specialist laminated panels were chosen for their high quality, thermal efficiency and speed of erection, helping to reduce the project completion time”.

“These panels are manufactured to engineered tolerances, arriving on site to meet our construction programme, providing a watertight envelope quicker, allowing other trades to work more efficiently inside”.
