The factory-engineered QuadCore Karrier Panels
formed the Dri-Design
rainscreen substrate. Comprising an internal liner sheet, advanced insulation core and external weather seal in a single panel, the system was quick and easy to install whilst the factory-engineered jointing helped to achieve excellent air tightness. This enabled the building to be made weathertight and the internal construction of the cinema screens to begin whilst the cladding continued externally.
Dri-Design’s simple interlocking fixing method further supported the fast-track construction programme, eliminating the need for complex rail and bracket systems, tape or gaskets. The one-piece Shadow
cassettes allowed for variated depths and angles, without affecting the substrate or weather barrier. The individual cassettes can also be easily repaired and recoated onsite to maximise longevity and ongoing safety.
The remainder of the building was clad with Evolution
panels. Installers, Steel & Roofing Systems, folded the 12m-long continuous corner pieces, retaining the impact of the unbroken volumes.
