On behalf of Apollo Property Services (Keepmoat), Retrofit UK Ltd were appointed to deliver the regeneration of Weybridge Point residential tower block.

The project was a 60s 17 story high rise building, built up of concrete frame with brick infill panels.

The clients requirements were to design and install a terracotta faced rain screen system that put zero additional load on the brick infill panels all to be fully insulated to current building regulations.

The over cladding was to consist of insulated rain screen cladding, this being Terracotta tiles, Powder coated aluminum panels, insulated render to balcony cheeks and soffits and architectural metalwork.

As only a small area of the concrete frame was available on the face of the building, Retrofit UK ltd devised a strategy to overcome this. We came up with the following method:

Core drill through the brick skin to expose the mail concrete up stand. Fix specially designed helping hand brackets to hand the Face Soladrilho system from. This resulted in leaving the brick skin completely free of load. We then proceeded to dress the building with the various systems mentioned above.

This resulted in not only complying to the brief, but delivered an accelerated programme and a very pleased client.
