Nominated for “best project” at the Construction News Specialists Awards 2020″.
T&T Facades was awarded a 7500m2 re-cladding contract with client WRW Construction. The project comprised the redevelopment of an existing 13-storey Swansea office block into much needed student housing. The existing city centre building was extended to include the construction of an additional two storeys to the block creating The Oldway Centre, consisting of 556 new en-suite student bedrooms including 12 studio apartments, a management area, show accommodation, common rooms, laundrette and a ground floor retail unit.
T&T Facades was responsible for the design, supply and installation of the rainscreen cladding package on the scheme, comprising Rockpanel rainscreen and various ancillaries including flashings, cavity barriers and parapet coping.
The site is surrounded by commercial and residential buildings which were mostly occupied during the construction works. T&T therefore needed to draw upon its extensive experience of delivering city centre projects which includes various hotels and high rise accommodation blocks.
