A2-s1,d0 engineered stone façade system

Shackerley’s SureClad® Engineered Stone cladding system has been used to create the façade at Stratford Mill; a luxury build to rent (BTR) development for Anthology in East London.

A showpiece development delivered as part of the Stratford Waterfront Regeneration, a £1.1 billion waterside cultural quarter that builds on the legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games, Stratford Mill is composed of two buildings – ‘Malt House’ and ‘Corn House’. The buildings provide 3650m2 of commercial accommodation on the lower floors, along with 75 luxury apartments, with a link structure that creates a communal roof garden for residential tenants.

Shackerley’s SureClad® Engineered Stone cladding system has been installed in two contrasting colourways, with white Valpolicella SureClad® Engineered Stone cladding installed for the beams and columns, and grey Valpolicella Engineered Stone façade panels used for the infill sections of the façade. Both shades of engineered stone façade panel were specified in a sandblasted finish. The project leverages the variety of colours and finishes in the SureClad® Engineered Stone cladding range to create depth and interest in the lightweight façade.

The SureClad® Engineered Stone A2-s1,d0 rated cladding system has been installed for a total façade area of almost 6,200 m2 using large format 3050mmx 1240mm cladding panels, manufactured at one of Shackerley’s ISO 9001 certified UK factories in Lancashire. The system was installed using Shackerley’s SureClad® Hang On installation system.

The Stratford Mill project builds on Shackerley’s relationship with main contractor, Watkin Jones, who specified the Shackerley SureClad® façade system in preference to the original GRC specification. The SureClad® cladding system has previously been specified for Watkin Jones student accommodation projects, including Market House in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and St Mungo’s in Glasgow, providing a lightweight stone façade solution that delivers a high-end aesthetic and compliance with cladding fire safety requirements.
