The T&T Facades cladding remediation team is pleased to announce its latest project.

Working with Berkeley Maintenance Services, the Aqua building in Lifeboat Quay, Poole, has been identified as one of the 22 residential blocks above 18-meters in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to have non-compliant cladding which is in breach of current regulations.

T&T’s scope of works includes the removal of the unsafe terracotta system and the combustible materials behind it. Once removed, the team will be installing a new non-combustible substructure and Cedral Click weather boarding, similar to the original terracotta colours.

The stainless steel backing structure will provide longevity for the systems lifespan, given its close proximity to the harbour.

Commenting, T&T Facades’ MD, Tom Rutter said “It has understandably been a very worrying and unsettling time for residents living for some time in a building deemed unsafe. We are therefore very pleased to be getting the remediation works underway for them and our client. T&T has considerable experience with this type of project so we expect to expedite the works as swiftly as possible and with the least amount of disruption for residents”.

Work has just begun on site and is expected to complete at the end of 2024.

CN Specs 2024 Finalist Logo OUTLINE

T&T Facades is pleased to announce that we have again been shortlisted in the Construction News Specialists Awards, 2024. This time for our work on Axe Street.

T&T was contracted to remediate this 8-storey, rendered, residential block in Barking as, post-Grenfell, the building was deemed unsafe, did not meet revised building regulations and would not be granted an EWS1 Form. The work was funded by the Building Safety Fund.

This project is the epitome of the value an experienced facades contractor can bring to a client, providing that specialist knowledge. We are very proud finalists!

Artist Impression

T&T Facades is delighted to be back working again with client Kier on a new, flagship surgical centre at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset.

The new centre will replace the current hospital theatres and critical care unit and will include six endoscopy rooms, patient recovery and clinical support areas, eight operating theatres and 22 critical care beds.

T&T has been contracted to design, procure and install the new buildings façade which will include a cladding package of Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC), Fibre Cement, Standing Seam & PPC Aluminium Rainscreen.

The façade features an artist-produced distinctive ‘wave like’ design, which will be brought to life by the installation of various different sizes and colours of öko skin GRC planks, following a complex and precise pattern.

Tom Rutter, MD for T&T Facades commented “We were very pleased to pick up this prestigious project and be able to help out a previous client. The team can’t wait to get their teeth into this challenging façade installation.”

T&T has previously worked with Kier on another high profile medical project – the SCCI (Southampton Centre for Cancer Immunology). Rutter went on to say “we enjoyed a good working relationship with Kier at the SCCI and we are looking forward to replicating that successful partnership at Musgrove Park.”

T&T plan to start on site in April 2024. The new centre is scheduled to open in early summer 2025.

 

Skyway1

The T&T team is pleased to be back at Southampton General Hospital, this time working directly for the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.

Following on from our work in the height of the pandemic on the new Oncology building, where we designed and installed the stylish rainscreen cladding package, T&T has returned to work on the new Skyway Link Bridge. Further expansion at the site created the need for a new walkway between the Oncology unit and the hospital’s main building.

Our works on the new, elevated, Skyway Link includes the design, procurement and installation of the decorative exterior feature-cladding which gives the bridge its distinct look. Designed by architects Kendall Kingscott, the  feature cladding is made up of perforated, rhomboid, aluminium panels in a bronze finish, sourced from Turkey.

T&T’s Managing Director, Tom Rutter said this is a really interesting project for the team. The cladding is certainly very unique and will no doubt create some design and installation challenges for us, but we are more than qualified to successfully deliver this project.” He continued, It’s good to be back and being a part of the hospital’s expansion programme.”      

The project is planned to commence in April, 2024.

 

St Georges Hornchurch

T&T Facades is pleased to be delivering the cladding package on a contract to construct the state-of-the-art St George’s Health and Wellbeing Hub in Hornchurch, London for the NHS.

Working directly for main contractor, McLaren, the three-storey building will be constructed using a hybrid of traditional and modern methods of construction to reduce building time, minimise disruption and improve safety. T&T’s contract is to deliver the design and installation of the raincreen cladding package.

The architecture and landscape design of the building has a distinctive character whilst complementing the local residential setting.

Commenting on the project, T&T Facades’ joint company owner Tom Rutter said We are very proud to be part of the delivery of such a critical, community enhancing building.  We’re pleased to be working with the first-class McLaren team and helping to give the building the quality finish it deserves”.

The project is planned for completion in Spring 2024.
