ACM RAIN-SCREEN CLADDING
The rainscreen cladding package on this project was a problem for the contractor to source. Two completely different cladding systems had been specified resulting in complicated and impractical interfaces.
Lockmetal was able to propose one system with different detailing to cope with the different U values, support structure and weatherproofing requirements.
Importantly, as the building was timber frame allowance had to be made for substantial differential movement between the elements during the construction phase.
The result was a pleasing aesthetic and project completed on time and on budget.
Unsurprisingly the contractor was pleased with the result and used the innovative detailing in subsequent marketing material.
