66 EXTERNAL ENVELOPE


thermal performance to be achieved with a slimmer build up. This not only creates more useable space but is also proven to increase daylight levels penetrating through windows. As well as improving occupant wellbeing, it may help to reduce a building’s artificial light demand.


It is also important to think beyond energy efficient design to the sustainability of the materials themselves. Manufacturers are increasingly looking to minimise the impact of their products through maximising the use of recycled content and improving the efficiency of their processes. Many modern panelised systems are also designed to be easily disassembled at end of life and then recycled or reused.


What already exists With an estimated 80 per cent of the buildings that we will occupy in 2050 already built, and only 15 per cent of those constructed after the introduction of insulation and energy performance standards in 1990, the refurbishment of existing stock will be critical to meeting the decarbonisation goals.


Where the original structure is sound, through-wall facade systems offer a simple


Major London project embraces RCM’s Y-wall


RCM are currently supplying a regeneration development in Canning Town, London with 100,000 sqm of their A1 non-combustible BBA certified fibre cement building board. The project is one of RCM’s largest Y-wall orders to-date. The Brunel Street Works will provide a mix of tenures and exciting spaces, which will add to the neighbourhood’s sustainability and vibrancy. RCM, the through wall solution supplier, were successfully appointed to supply 100,000 sqm of their A1 Y-wall sheathing board to Errigal through its strategic partner Walls & Ceilings International Limited. The board is a high-quality flexible calcium silicate based fibre cement building board. With its excellent fire properties as well as high levels of dimensional stability, it is an exceptional board for use in multiple applications. The RCM fabrication team are overlaying the Y-wall onto the SFS drawings and then optimizing and fabricating the 100,000 sqm of sheathing board to the required panel sizes. The benefit of this is minimizing any cutting on-site as well as dramatically reducing waste. RCM are exhibiting at UK Construction Week, 8-10 October, NEC Birmingham – stand B485.

Kalwall helps famous Brewery take the LEED Kalwall®


retrofit solution that can be a much more cost- and time-efficient solution than demolishing and rebuilding. They enable both the energy efficiency and overall look of a building to be transformed, maximising the return on investment on the original structure whilst also eliminating carbon emissions from the demolishment process and reducing waste to landfill – all helping to reduce the environmental impact of the project.


Enveloping the issue There are many aspects for the architectural industry to consider as the UK moves forward on its climate commitments and it will be interesting to hear the discussions and solutions coming out of forums like the new Facades Academy at the Building Centre in London. Whatever transpires, flexible and high-performance solutions, such as through-wall facade systems, will be crucial to creating buildings which are ready to meet a plethora of demands, both now and in the future.

translucent cladding has helped the New Belgium Brewing company accomplish a raft of sustainability


awards for its latest brewery on the East Coast of the USA. Specified by international architects Perkins + Will, the new brewery in Asheville has been hailed as a showcase for the art of sustainable practice and design. The project earned three LEED Silver Certifications for the Distribution Center, Gold for the Brew House and Platinum for the ‘Liquid Centre’. At the SEAL Business Sustainability Awards event, all this helped New Belgium Brewing be recognised as one of ‘The 50 most sustainable companies in the world’. The innovative use of Kalwall in the clerestory adds to the building’s striking appearance as well as contributing valuable points for the LEED ratings. Not only does Kalwall diffuse daylighting deep into the interior but it removes shadows and glare and the stark contrasts of light and shade. The system also enhances simplicity in external design by eliminating the need for blinds, curtains or solar control. Kalwall’s insulating properties also mean that U-values down to 0.28 can be achieved, thereby helping with the important requirements of Part L.
