Innovative Design and Material
The project featured cladding panels made from a Spanish dolomite mix, known for its durability and aesthetic appeal. The balconies, each composed of five individual units, were structurally connected on-site, demonstrating the versatility and adaptability of cladding panels.
Integration and Installation
A notable aspect of the project was the unitization of fin panels with the curtain walling system, which was carried out off-site within Evans by Shay Murtagh's factory. This pre-assembly ensured a streamlined and efficient installation process for the cladding panels.
The installation phase presented unique challenges due to the congested nature of the site. However, Evans by Shay Murtagh skillfully managed the delivery, offloading, and distribution of cladding panels using crawler and floor cranes, showcasing their logistical expertise.
