Shropshire County Council specified Corium because it offered a fast track solution to the construction process.
More than 250m² of Corium Smooth Red tiles were fixed on site to the constructed timber frame by Corium Approved Installer, Irvine Whitlock Ltd. Corium specials installed to complement the Corium tiles included purpose designed corners and reveals.
Mechanically clipped into galvanised steel backing sections which are fixed to the elevation first, Corium’s approach ensures fast track construction. Its design allows elevations to be completed faster, enabling earlier enclosure and giving greater certainty to the build programme. Analysis has shown that designing with Corium can help cut cladding build programmes by around a third and that Corium is up to three times faster to install than traditional brickwork on site.
Corium was developed by Baggeridge in conjunction with Corus plc and Terrapin International Ltd, and combines the aesthetics of traditional natural clay brickwork with the construction benefits of fast track cladding systems.
