Goods Corner, Edinburgh
This prestigious project sits just off the North Circular in the shadow of Wembley. It towers high above all around it and places an imposing mark on the sky line. This is a full refurbishment of a reinforced concrete structure. All existing external walls were removed and replaced – along with infill floor sections – to the whole of the building.
Frameclad employed a number of specialist techniques to deal with the inconsistency of the existing build – As Built information was sometimes difficult to come by and slightly inaccurate – however, the build went tremendously well and both specialist installer partner Buildtherm and the client RGB are delighted with the results.
Infill extensions to the concrete floors were a particular challenge.
There are plans to introduce further structural amendments to the penthouse – Frameclad and the project developers are looking at options to make this a reality.
Frameclad manufactured all of the internal/external frames for these two interlinked block five-storey residential development. Floors were constructed from lattice joists and also balcony cassettes were supplied to sit inside a hot rolled frame. Access was limited and due to the busy site location deliveries had to be carefully coordinated and time slots hit.
