External Walls Case Study - Blue Planet Stoke
Blue Planet, Stoke
Architect: Chetwood Associates
Location: Chatterly Valley, Stoke
Duration: 10 weeks
Completion: December 2008
Western Red Cedar
A true landmark project in environmentally conscious construction, the Blue Planet in Chatterley Valley is the UK’s first carbon positive, BREEAM excellent rated logistics park. It was therefore essential that the procurement routes of this project met the same exacting environmental standards and that the design quality of the cladding itself reflected the high profile nature of the project.
Horizontal and vertical cladding panels were manufactured off-site, then installed and aligned using BCL’s dynamic bracketing system along with all aluminium feature trims.
“We were very impressed with the service BCL delivered on the project, from the front end design advice, through to detailed drawing design and ultimately to delivery on site…”
