Architect: Hargreaves

Main Contractor: Hargreaves Construction

Project value: £650,000

Sector: Commercial

Scope of Works:

Solent Trade Park Units 3 & 4

T. A. Colbourne Limited designed and built the structural steel frames and the roof and wall cladding, including features and rainwater goods.

A frame-to-frame wall panel system was used on this project to enable a single span cladding panel between columns,  eliminating secondary steelwork. This system is very economic and provides a smooth uncluttered appearance both inside and out with an increased floor area.

Unit 3 also involved a cladding feature frame around the entrances. The flashings were designed and installed to achieve a seamless and clean appearance.

Approved Document L2A of the 2006 Building Regulations requires all commercial and industrial buildings with a gross floor area greater than 500 m2 to be tested for air permeability to a minimum standard of 10m3/(h.m2)  at 50 Pa this project when tested, achieved lower than 3 m3/(h.m2)  at 50 Pa.
