Corium Brick Cladding System Provides A Lightweight Solution (2)

Project Overview

Ultra Electronics on behalf of Balfour Beatty for Network Rail was required to clad a series of transformer houses and sub-stations on the Sunderland Metro.


Corium was fast track and its light weight allowed easy installation onto the steel framed modules. One of the main advantages of Corium is that no foundation is required and modules were clad with minimum site space and within access limitations.
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.   

Review and Comment

Phil Noble, Corium’s Technical and Commercial Manager says, “These schemes in particular demonstrate the flexibility of the system which was created in response to client needs and the increasing emphasis being placed on site quality, prefabrication and speed of construction."

Feedback since its launch has led us to develop further products in the range which will be introduced shortly. These include large format tiles and different textured standard size tiles, additional colours and shapes and Baggeridge bricks to match Corium.

A total support package backs Corium including design advice, installation by approved installers and technical assistance
