The project involved fitting 135m² of P-Clad to a new modular building off-site in Eco Off-Site Production’s factory in Yorkshire. For overall speed of delivery, installing the brick cladding in a controlled environment will produce significant productivity gains compared to on-site installation. In this case, it took Nubrick just 5 days, using two installers and one pointer to fit the cladding to the building and point the brickwork. Twenty four hours after the installation was completed the building was lifted and by the next day it had arrived on site at Parkfields School in Bedfordshire. The only site works required in respect of completing the exterior finish was to insert the brick slips and point where the modular joints met.
P-Clad comprises a cement particle board with our horizontal ribbed profile pre-bonded to it. P-Clad was developed by us for use as an external sheathing on structures where there is no requirement for insulation. Our cladding systems are used extensively by modular building companies for off-site installation. They are quick and easy to install and robust enough to be transported to site and craned into position. We have two ranges of brick slips available, offering a wide variety of colours, styles and textures. The cost effective Britannia Range is particularly popular for finishing modular buildings. The slips are extruded meaning they are manufactured as a slip (rather than being cut from a whole brick). All of our brick slips are real kiln fired clay products meaning the end product is a traditional looking masonry wall which is both durable and low maintenance.
London Multi Buff F297 brick slips and Europoint Light Sandstone pointing mortar were chosen for the Parkfields School project.
