Dock 9 - Manchester

System: Outsulation, Fedderlite
Finish: PMRB
Texture: Sandpebble, Sandblast
Sector: Residential

Dryvit's pre-fabricated Fedderlite and Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) systems were used to clad this purpose built multi-storey apartment building at Dock 9, Salford Quays in Manchester. The 19 storey building at the city’s Dock 9 development has one and two bedroom apartments designed by Conran as part of the Landmark Development. Architects Conran and Partners had strict requirements for energy efficiency throughout the high specification development, and so specified an aesthetically contrasting wall system and a panelised façade solution that aligned with these requirements and the overall design scheme. David McLean (the principal contractor on site) was attracted to Dryvit’s Fedderlite insulated render system to clad the property due to the fast track installation of the panels – which could be installed off mast climbers therefore reducing access time and costs. The Fedderlite insulated render panels were manufactured off site in a controlled environment enabling the installation to meet tight programme requirements regardless of the weather.  Area: 3,000m2.
