Aluprofs’ range of aluminium framed glazing systems have been specified for the external façade of Matalan’s new headquarters at Knowsley Industrial Park.
Designed by Manchester-based Fletcher-Rae Architects, Aluprof fabricator CSI won the contract to fabricate and install the external facade.
The three-story, 132,000 square-foot office block uses Aluprof’s 50mm MBSR50N curtain walling for its main façades, with the capless version (MBSR50N-Efekt capless) of the same system used for the reception atrium.
The system includes high performance seals, with further insulation within the system provided by HPVC strips.
The glazing shade variations to main curtain walling areas are achieved by a mixture of Coolite ST150, Grey tinted and Mid Grey ceramic spandrels.
The headquarters’ doors are constructed from Aluprofs’ ‘MB70’ system, with the entrance side pass doors fabricated using ‘MB86’.
This system enables glass to be bonded to the face of the door leaf to create a flush glazed effect.
Matalan’s offices achieve a BEEAM rating of ‘very good’, as the project incorporates sustainable technologies for power, heating and cooling.
In addition, there is a future opportunity to link into a proposed on-site energy generation facility which is located in a separate building, forming part of a second phase development.
