An Elite Topping with all the Sides for Dominos Pizza

Creating a modern, weatherproof warehouse was the focus for the construction of a new state-of-the-art Dominos Pizza supply chain centre in Warrington.

The building is located in Omega South, part of the new Omega development, a former RAF airbase site covering 575 acres situated to the north of Warrington, halfway between Liverpool and Manchester. A regeneration project owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), Omega is a £1 billion mixed-use development set in a highly accessible location just off the M62.

Comprising commercial premises, new homes, retail and leisure opportunities, as well as vibrant parkland and wildlife areas, the vision for Omega involves the creation of up to 24,000 new jobs, the provision of affordable housing, and attracting long-term investment to Warrington. The new £30 million Dominos Pizza supply chain centre occupies a bespoke warehouse unit at Omega covering 10,800 square metres. Providing jobs for 120 people in the local area, the centre is used as a space for production, storage and distribution, serving 450 Dominos outlets across the north west of England, and comprises a two-storey office, parking and a substation.

The development of the centre was led by architects Chetwood Associates which specified Euroclad to provide cladding for this project. Having worked with Euroclad before, the team could be confident that cladding work carried out on the building would be compliant with its requirements. The client, Omega Warrington Limited, wanted a high quality, watertight roofing system to span the entire roof and, as one of the only cladding manufacturers that could offer continuous roof profile sheets with no joints, Euroclad was also specified to provide cladding for the roof which was over 64 metres long.

Euroclad supplied its Elite 3 roofing system, which is installed without fixings and has single length rolled sheets, ideal for long-span buildings. Elite systems also offer the benefits of a package of components that form performance-tested and accredited systems that are lightweight and can be installed quickly. To eradicate the risk of water ingress, Euroclad supplied 9300m2 of continuous sheets of SF500 outer profile in Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel in Albatross, which was rolled on-site to avoid the costly transportation of large sheets. With Euroclad’s Elite system in place, the roof has an energy-efficient U-value of 0.23W/m2K.

To make the most of natural light in the building, Hambleside Danelaw’s Zenon Arc barrel vault rooflights were installed in the roof making this the first building in the UK to receive these rooflights. Made using Zenon Pro traditionally reinforced glass fibre sheets, which are highly durable and can be expected to last up to 25 years, the translucent in-plane roof lights were installed as triple skin with a daylight opening width of one metre to let high levels of natural daylight into the building.

Amanda Davis, Regional Sales Manager at Hambleside Danelaw, said: “Our Zenon Arc rooflights are great for industrial buildings and the ideal solution for low-pitch curved roof applications so they were the perfect choice for this project.

“The roof lights were profiled to match the building envelope and were installed within Euroclad’s Elite 3 roofing system with ease – much quicker than with other systems – which in turn meant that the project could be completed on time and within budget.”

Euroclad was also chosen to clad the external walls of the building, supplying its high quality horizontal Elite 55 system.  Euroclad’s Elite wall systems offer high performance, design and flexibility to suit many applications, combined with an entire system guarantee. Selected by the client for its aesthetic appeal, the Elite 55 system is a proven, cost-effective system. 6500m2 of horizontal 32/1000 outer wall profiles were used as part of Elite 55, made from Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel in Goosewing Grey, giving the walls a U-value of 0.31W/m2K.

110 years of heritage brought to life

Brooklands Aircraft Factory & Race Track

A major part of a historic site for motoring, aviation and engineering has been brought back to life as part of a revival project to help visitors understand the pivotal role Brooklands played in the field of engineering. The transformation of the Bellman Hangar into a learning centre for science, technology and engineering, opened towards the end of 2017.

A total of 3,314m2 of Euroclad’s galvanised steel sinusoidal profiles were manufactured and supplied, in a combination of uncoated and Colorcoat Prisma® finishes, to clad the hangar’s exterior walls and roof.  19/1000 liner panels were used on the inside of the Flight Shed with Euroclad’s Quattro spacer bar system.

Matthew Beard from Roofing, Cladding and Building Ltd, the specialist installers who worked on the project, said: “It was great to work on such a historic site and to help give the buildings a new lease of life. Replicating the aesthetics of the original buildings was key”. Matthew continued: “Euroclad were able to provide the like-for-like industrial feel that the project required which was great.”

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.
