Media City - Manchester

System: Fedderlite
Finish: PMRB
Texture: Sandblast
Sector: Hospitality, Commercial

Dryvit's pre-fabricted Fedderlite external wall insulation (EWI) panels provided a practical fast track solution at the new Media City, Salford Quays. It was suggested by Lend Lease that Fairhurst Architects should consider the innovative Fedderlite pre-fabricated EWI as an alternative to the in-situ cladding system originally specified on the 22 storey buildings at the heart of Media City. The Fedderlite insulated render panels were manufactured off site in a controlled environment enabling the installation to meet tight programme requirements during the harsh winter months in an exposed environment. PMRB finish in Sandblast texture was selected to emulate a stone effect.  As the buildings were over 18m Dryvit's BR 135 fire classification for Fedderlite EWI was instrumental in satisfying building control requirements and securing the specification. Area: 7000 sq meters. Completed June 2011.
