Birmingham city university (BCU)

Project Description

A new-build student ‘hub’ providing more than 650 rooms to aid a future generation of learners. The structure consists of a steel frame, Siniat Weather Defence Board, EPS and then finished in our BrickPlus: Eco cladding system. The external BrickPlus: Eco façade increased the thermal performance of the building whilst providing a traditional brick finish.

We produced a smooth titanium grey engineering brick to create a clean cut modern finish. There are many bespoke sections including over 30+ specific angles of squints.

A base coat of adhesive was applied to the outer layer of EPS on which the BrickPlus: Eco panel system was installed. Our super quick installation, the thermal benefits and brick finish made for an ideal, cost effective alternative to traditional construction.

Monolith, The ALD Group & Willmott Dixon continue to work in partnership on other key projects.
