Hwb Cyfle Dri-Design Grey White Diagonal Case Study
Aluminium Dri-Design rainscreen facade was used on the front section of the building, supported by the QuadCore Karrier substructure. The panels were laid diagonally across the building in a pattern of different colours and shades, creating a friendly, cheerful and approachable facade. 

A mix of render and traditional brick was used for the rest of the building facade with a QuadCore Karrier substructure. The use of the QuadCore karrier system meant that the project was water and air tight fast, sealing the building extremely quickly. Our QuadCore Karrier panels are extremely user friendly and easy to install, they can be lifted manually into position and have an airtight tongue and groove joint interfit. The QuadCore Karrier system was chosen for its speed in sealing the building, allowing the internal fit-out to begin whilst the facade was installed.
