Parsons Tower

Project Name: Parsons Tower, Newcastle College Location: Newcastle, England

Architect: Redbox Design Ltd, Contractors: Longworth Building Services

Products Supplied: TIA adjustable fastener systems, SX2/8-D9-4.8x22 (A4 316)

Project Approach: Wall Cladding Solution: Zinc and copper cladding fixed to various composite panels required a low profile, high grade stainless steel solution with excellent pull out values. The solution was the SX2/8-D9-4.8x22 in A4 316 austentitic stainless steel self drilling fastener - which gives excellent pull out values and reduces over driving due to the thread design.

Roof Solution: The isotak® TIA adjustable fastener system was used due to its ability to reduce fastener and polypropelene sleeve combinations by 50% and reduce drilling from between 50 to 70%.

City South Business Park - Aberdeen

Project Approach: Sarnafil's single ply roofing system was specified for the refurbishment of the University of Aberdeen's Meston Building, originally designed by Sir Robert Robinson in 1952. The refurbishment required a 40 year warranty for the 2,000m2 roof and it was completed in stages to ensure the building could be used as per its operational schedules. Other University buildings, such as The Hub, the two libraries, the School of Education's MacRobert Building, the Cruickshank and the Powarth Buildings also feature Sarnafil roofs that complement the University's 1930s aesthetics.

Architect: Michael Hopkins, Contractors: ISG, Prater

Project Approach: The London 2012 Velodrome’s highly distinctive form – an award-winning, double-curving, structure designed to reflect the shape of the cycling track – used a range of extremely efficient design solutions that helped make it one of the most sustainable buildings of its kind. We supplied Prater with fasteners for the complex cable net roof structure, the first of its kind, incorporating 13,000 sqm of aluminium metal standing seam roof, eight 100 m long roof lights, 420 lm of bullnose to the perimeter and 22 movement joints.
