Structura makes a strong point for London landmark

  • 5 Sep 2019

Structura UK, the fabricator and installer of glass curtain walling and specialist refinishing expert, has completed a huge project renewing and refreshing a London landmark.

Delta Point, the 28,500 square metre former BT office building in Croydon, has been completely overhauled as part of its transformation into 404 apartments and commercial units.

Work started on complete glazing refurbishment, coupled with refurbishing and refinishing the entire cladding façade. 

The scale of this project meant Structura was on site for more than a year, with a full-time crew, setting up a specialist preparation/spraying booth in order to facilitate refurbishment with minimum disruption.

This innovative booth, complete with extraction venting, was complemented with a curing booth set up in the basement. Work on other panels was also carried out in situ from cradles suspended around the building.

An added complication was the fact that, with the building changing use from Commercial to Residential, the paint needed to achieve class 0 on spread of flame in accordance with BS 476.

To ensure conformity and correct certification, Structura’s bespoke colour formulation was tested at Exova Warrington Fire, to guarantee it was fully compliant.

This sizeable project is a perfect example of how Structura’s various divisions can collaborate to provide a one-stop-shop for the complete renewal of facades.

The ability to design, fabricate and install replacement glazing, along with cladding refurbishment and refinishing, creates a seamless project management workflow and reduces costs and time spent on site.

Importantly, it negates the need to use several different contractors with the associated problems that can entail.
