SFS intec‘s powder-coated, high performance A4 stainless steel fasteners helped create a gold building envelope for a bar and restaurant in Manchester.
The Bund sits on the MediaCity waterfront beside the Lowry Centre for Living Ventures. It was designed by Reid Architects to be original, special and draw together the diverse areas of Salford Quays in a single new building
The building provides a revolutionary hybrid landscape in creating what is a unique and futuristic venue. The new building’s gold roof and walls, and terrace that cantilevers out over the canal, are designed to match the aesthetic and style ambitions of Living Ventures and of the bar’s clientele.
Longworth constructed the building envelope, and the company’s Business Development Manager, Ben Parker comments: “Colour coordinating the gold zinc panels and the fasteners was critical, which is why we worked with SFS to ensure complete colour consistency on the fastener heads. We can rely on the excellent quality of SFS products, with their range of A4 (grade 316) fasteners enabling us to offer an extended life cycle on the building envelope.”
Graeme Mcllroy, Regional Sales Manager at SFS adds: “Fasteners hold the key to maintaining the visual appeal of the building envelope, with our powder coated A4 stainless steel fasteners best for ensuring a facade retains its integrity over a long service life.”
The building has since been shortlisted of a Building of the Year Award with Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
