Historic Building Refresh

RENOVATION OF A COMMUNITY THEATRE ORIGINALLY BUILT IN 1921

A 96-year-old Lancashire community and entertainment venue is on course for full refurbishment after the completion of the first stage in its renovation.

Originally built in 1921, Lowther Pavilion is set in Lowther Gardens in Lytham St Annes and is a venue for theatrical productions, concerts, exhibitions, wedding receptions and community events. The first of a three-phase plan in the £5.25 million renovation project began in 2016 and was completed in 2017 with the completion of the new roof.

Euroclad’s products provided enhanced thermal performance and recreated the shape of the building’s original roof, which had remained intact since its construction in 1921. Improving the thermal performance of the roof was essential to this project so the existing roof was over-clad with a Refresh System featuring the Vieo warm roof; achieving the desired 0.11W/m2K U-Value, a highly thermally-efficient solution.

Refresh Systems offer a package of over-clad roof and wall refurbishment systems that can be adapted to suit various existing construction types and achieve a variety of defined performances.

The roof featured the Vieo roof profile in organic patina coated aluminium, which provided a weathered aluminium finish. The adaptability of the Vieo profile also allowed the specialist installers to remove a dip that existed in the original roof and achieve the look of a traditional pitched roof. As well as the new roof the first phase also included the relaying of the building’s original maple floor, construction of concrete supporting walls and the installation of new tiered seating in the auditorium.

Sean Boylan from AMS Cladding, who installed the roof, said: “Having worked with Euroclad before, we know and trust its products and the team were able to provide us with the most cost-effective option for this project. Its Vieo roof system and profile were quick and easy to install,  and the flexibility of Vieo allowed us to resolve the dip in the original roof, which was causing a significant difference in height. Euroclad was also able to provide the system guarantee which was required on this project.”

Funded by grants from Fylde Council, private donations and the Love Lowther renovation appeal – which is still actively raising funds – the refurbishment of Lowther Pavilion is set to be completed in time for the venue’s centenary in 2021. The project, which is being led by Andy Wolfe of architects Creative SPARC, has also been guided by feedback from public consultation events.

Euroclad’s diverse range of steel and aluminium cladding systems are available in a choice of options and colours. Founded in 1981, Euroclad has maintained its cutting edge approach to high performance, cost-effective solutions to remain at the forefront of the industry for over 35 years.

Beyond Compliance, Towards Excellence

After a year of hard work building a new focused Environmental Management System to suit the ISO14001:2015 standard, Euroclad Architectural and Booth Muirie manufacturing have both been given a positive recommendation to gain accreditation, meaning that the entire operations at Euroclad’s Cardiff headquarters will soon be accredited to the latest version of the ISO14001 standard.

Claims of conformity to ISO14001:2015 are not acceptable unless all its requirements are incorporated into an organization’s environmental management system and fulfilled without exclusion. This makes it a significant achievement, with only a handful of manufacturing companies having achieved this standard.

Helping to attract new business at St Modwen’s landmark warehouse scheme

Helping to attract new business at St Modwen’s landmark warehouse scheme

The final stage of a landmark warehouse scheme has been brought to life in Tamworth, making it one of the most prominent locations in the Midlands for warehouse and distribution operators.

Completed in May 2017, Unit B at Centurion Park, which was commissioned by St Modwen, one of the UK’s leading regeneration specialists, forms the larger part of a logistics and distribution hub that covers a staggering 21-acre site.

The focus for the project was to produce a highly functional building that was aesthetically identical to the adjacent warehouse, providing consistent building aesthetics and attracting businesses to locate in the area. Euroclad’s Elite roof and wall systems, including ridge-to-eaves rooflights, provided the matching, high quality, modern appearance that the project required.

Specialist installers Hickton Construction chose Euroclad’s Elite 51 and Elite 60 vertical cladding systems for the walls which, together with the Elite Secret Fix SF500 roofing system, provided a 25 year full system guarantee.

Euroclad’s high performance Elite Secret Fix SF500 roofing system, covering 12,100m2, provided excellent acoustic and thermal insulation, giving the roof an energy efficient U-value of 0.18W/m2K. The external roofing profile was manufactured using Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in Albatross, with ridge-to-eaves rooflights also installed over an area of 1,750m2.

The walls, which had a 0.25W/m2K U-value, were made up of 5000m2 of Elite 51 and 623m2 of Elite 60, manufactured from Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in Albatross and Merlin Grey respectively.

Ideally located adjacent to junction 10 of the M42, Unit B provides the opportunity for speculative industrial warehouse accommodation on a prime site, offering 14,215m2 of warehouse space with 24/7 access, parking for over 100 vehicles and two-level access doors.

David Thornloe, from Hickton Construction which installed the systems and profiles, said: “This was a large-scale project that had to be completed on time and on budget using high quality products and having worked with Euroclad on many projects before, they were our first choice.

“They provided us with a range of options to help create the desired effect and delivered our products in good time, which was great for us as we were working to a tight schedule. They also helped us work around the low pitch of the roof by recommending their SF500 Elite roofing system which can be installed with a very low pitch.”

Euroclad’s diverse range of steel and aluminium cladding systems are available in a range of

options and colours. Founded in1981, Euroclad has maintained its cutting edge approach to high performance, cost-effective solutions to remain at the forefront of the industry for over 35 years.

The future of modern, energy-efficient homes

The future of modern, energy-efficient homes
—Efficiency and style at Exeter eco-housing development—

Holland Park is Exeter’s first ever zero carbon housing development. Located at the edge of Exeter Golf and Country Club in Old Rydon Lane, it comprises 40 premium properties made with exceptional craftsmanship and fitted with furnishings and appliances of the highest specification.

Each property is AA energy rated under the UK’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) regulations and all have zero carbon emissions due to their use of solar PV systems.

The construction specification for the luxury properties in Holland Park highlighted the need for energy-efficient products that also offer a striking contemporary style. To achieve these characteristics, the project’s installer Progressive Systems Ltd chose Euroclad’s VieoZinc warm roofing system to be used on the properties.

Connecting People with Nature

Sustainability is at the very heart of Euroclad’s manufacturing and is critical to key Supply Chain Partnerships. Euroclad endorses the sustainable credentials of Colorcoat® pre-finished steel and it’s BES6001 responsible sourcing certification, which is a core element of Elite Systems.
Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel are both manufactured by Tata Steel at their Shotton site in North Wales, surrounded by the Dee Estuary. The site balances industrial manufacturing with the environment and is home to open natural spaces and various wildlife species such as pond life, Terns and Canada Geese.
For World Environment day on the 5th of June, staff at Shotton will be celebrating by “Connecting People with Nature” through a series of educational walks through the diverse environments, as well as guided tours of the Tern Lagoons – which is officially a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Above all, World Environment Day is the ‘people’s day’ for doing something to take care of the Earth or become an agent of change. That ‘something’ can be focused locally, nationally or globally; it can be a solo action or involve a crowd – everyone is free to choose.

The Theme
Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2017 is connecting people to nature.
The Host
Every World Environment Day has a different global host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps highlight the environmental challenges it faces, and supports the effort to address them. This year’s host is Canada.
