Review and Comment
Commenting on the installation, David Dean, Area Surveyor for West Sussex County Council’s property services department, says, “Due to its light weight Corium does not need additional foundations so this proved to be a real cost saving benefit. More than 34m² of Corium was installed at the library within two weeks.”
The existing cladding was removed and the Corium tiles site fixed by approved Corium installer PCE Ltd. The overall contract period included a Bank Holiday and involved special procedures to ensure site security was maintained at all times.
Corium 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.
