The intent for the building was that it would be used for commercial, residential, and hospitality needs. The end result is modular building that became one of London’s tallest modular structures.
In the case of the mixed-use development, Vision Modular Systems (VMS) manufactured the prefabricated modules, where they were then delivered on-site by crane. Exterior cladding and roofing, however, was installed on site.
The exterior of the development’s Novotel Hotel features protruding box windows, which give the hotel a unique three-dimensional appearance. The hotel’s facade is further enhanced with the installment of ALUCOBOND PLUS Spectra Cupral, a warm, color-shifting aluminum composite material.
Installed by Booth Muirie, the ACM’s visually- striking appearance can be attributed to the coating systems that were applied to the cladding material.
Beckers’ Beckry Fluor and Beckry Flon, which were used to give the Novotel Hotel its unique hue-changing color and the protective topcoat, provide a plethora of benefits when applied to architectural surfaces. With Beckry Fluor and Beckry Flon, buildings enjoy longevity, durability, color and gloss retention, and weatherability in the face of UV radiation, water, salt, and any other elemental factors that could possibly result in coating degradation.
