Project Award: Tyndall Street, Cardiff
Speedclad has secured the contract for design, supply and installation of the glazed façade on a new residential scheme in Cardiff's city centre.
The scheme, from developer IM Properties, and owned and operated by Grainger plc, a leader in the UK build to rent sector, will provide high-quality residential accommodation for the private rented sector that will form a focal point in the Capital Quarter Development of Cardiff city centre. The 23-storey block will comprise 307 apartments in a combination of studio, one and two bed and is expected to be completed mid-2022. At roof level there will be an outstanding residents' clubhouse, with Skybar and roof gardens, boasting impressive views across the city and waterfront. The design, by Associated Architects, is centred on the striking concrete frame with recessed patterned panels and the quartz grey curtain walling, set back from the façade to soften and provide depth to the design.
Speedclad's contract, for key client Winvic Construction, comprises design, supply and installation of the curtain walling and ST90 window system from APA Façade Systems, as well as external doors and all associated items.
