NVELOPE BRACKETS USED IN TRANSPORT FOR LONDON SCHEME

NVELOPE, the rainscreen cladding support specialist, recently supplied customised brackets to a structurally challenging and public facing substation building in Central London, which now boasts an eye-catching, aesthetically attractive patterned exterior. 

The Transport for London (TFL) Government scheme to upgrade the Underground system has seen a new substation building constructed at Griffith House on Chapel Street, besides Edgware Road station.  Cladding specialist A J Wells & Son, specified NVELOPE knowing that they would be able to supply a support system which would be perfectly suited to this demanding project.

NVELOPE’s vertical brackets and NV3 system were specified, but required customising to enable support of the 45kg panels. Usually supplied as a stack system, the brackets were configured to be demountable, meaning that if one cladding board becomes damaged, the individual panel would be able to be replaced, rather than having to take off a number of the boards.  Once designed to meet the project’s specific requirements, a total of 2,500 NV3 brackets were specified to support the 1.8m x 1.2m cladding panels used on this 1,529 square metre building, with around 650 being provided with a greater depth to compensate the deviation in the wall.

Matthew Small of Façade Concepts, who were the sub-contractors for this project comments: “We enjoyed great support from NVELOPE throughout this project.  The service they provide is extremely good and we have complete trust in them.  Working with NVELOPE meant that when we called up at 3pm ordering more brackets, they arrived on-site by the following morning.  This swift and efficient service ensured that we were able to complete the project a few days before our deadline.”

Manufactured in the UK and developed using the highest specification alloys, NVELOPE products and systems are ideal for supporting a wide variety of façade materials. The company’s range of rainscreen brackets and grid systems can be optimised for specific projects, as on this TFL installation, thanks to the expertise of its technical design support service. This ensures that NVELOPE can add real value to the design process, bringing architects and specifier’s real freedom with an almost infinite range of façade appearance and layout options.

NVELOPE support systems have achieved full BBA certification, are safe and manufactured under the ISO 9001 quality management system.
