Nottingham Trent Uni Library


While updating the library at NTU, Elite came to us for advice when they were looking to propose an alternative solution to adding a single skin brick wall to the outside of the existing timber frame building.

To achieve the desired brick finish, instead of installing a secondary plywood sheathing onto battens to support our X-Clad system, we suggested that they use P-Clad. Its cement particle board would save them adding an extra layer to the outside of the building, allowing for an earlier completion compared to constructing traditional brickwork.

P-Clad was fixed on counter battens to an insulated framed wall and finished with Rustic Golden Multi Buff 684 brick slips and natural mortar.
