Britplas has started work on the first of two new office blocks under construction at Milton Park, Oxfordshire. Selected by main contractor Barnwood Construction as the preferred glazing contractor and façade installer, Britplas presented the client with an innovative solution designed in-house by our specialist team.
The design solution included combining both curtain walling, brise soleil and rainscreen cladding within one system, reducing both the number of trades and time spent on-site. Britplas also chose to have the entire framework fitted with gaskets off-site to reduce the risk of complications during the installation period.
The 2500m2 Schüco curtain walling system is now being installed in line with the 12 week build programme. Glazing on the second building is set to start in early April with both office blocks due to be occupied in the autumn.
Ben Woodward, Operations Manager, Britplas said: “It is fantastic to see the commencement of the façade installation at Milton Park. The team have worked extremely hard to ensure that every detail has been considered. These projects further demonstrate the high level of in house design, manufacture and delivery capabilities by Britplas and we look forward to building on the relationships developed with the client, contractor and supply chain.”
