Project: Isambard Kingdom Brunel School, Somerset
During the summer of 2020 Industrial Contracting Services Ltd (ICS) carried out the Rainscreen Cladding Installation on a modular building at Isambard Kingdom Brunel School in Somerset using a Marley Cedral Click Plank fixed back to an Aluminium subframe and the system was completed with the use of Horizontal and Vertical Fire Barriers and Aluminium Trims, Flashings and Copings.
The project was predominantly carried out during the first lockdown of the Covid 19 pandemic but due to the project being an Education Facility our installers were classified as Key workers so works despite being partially interrupted progressed to ensure the school could open in September 2020 for the new school term.
The Architect and Client had a very clear brief of how they wanted the building to look with banks of vertically fixed Darky Grey Cedral cladding breaking up the predominantly light grey building facade and ICS were engaged to carry out the detailed design for this the finished project replicates the original design intent exactly.
The project was executed on programme and on budget which was a great achievement at a time when materials were not as readily available due to the impact of covid 19 and many businesses working with skeleton staff due to the furlough process.
The tight programme was met due to the efforts and co-ordination of the respective contractors on site and the hard work in particular of the ICS installation team who worked long hours to deliver a project to an extremely high standard which also included some interesting and quirky features none more so than the feature sports hall wall (see photograph below) with its raking cuts that leave a striking impression.
