Located near the centre of Cardiff Bay, Premier Inn was recently completed by installers Build-Therm Services for RGB Group who utilised SPSenvirowall’s external wall insulation system with a flexible brick slip finish.
Changing the landscape in a prominent location in Cardiff Bay, overlooking the Wales Millennium Centre, the 210 bed development took 74 weeks at a value of £15million and is a part of the Cardiff Waterside scheme, a part of the city’s future expansion. Build-Therm Services was contracted to install a light-weight SFS system with an insulated brick slip system to the new build hotel to which SPSenvirowall specified its specialised products.
Over 3,500m2 of direct fix 160mm mineral wool was specified with white flexible brick slips as part of its Wall System 1 solution. SPSenvirowall was able to provide its colour matching service to this project by matching a traditional white saw-toothed flexible brick slip to provide a bespoke façade appearance required by the developer.
Cardiff’s new Premier Inn has been brought to life by the saw-toothed brick slip which creates shadow effects across its façade, changing its appearance throughout the day. SPSenvirowall’s flexible brick slips provide an A2 rating or better on all key system components, combines a lightweight system, long lifespan with no maintenance costs to provide a cost-effective solution compared to traditional brick slips.
Reaching the highest standard of fire safety for the external cladding, SpeedySlips are lightweight and boasts an A2-s1, d0 fire-rated classification in accordance with BS EN13501-1, making them suitable for use on high rise buildings, including refurbishment projects.
