Specialist Cladding Systems (SCS), CA Group Limited’s specialist cladding division, has announced that it has secured another project win with Winvic Construction Limited. Newhall Square, in Birmingham, is a new build private rental scheme for Spitfire Properties (Newhall) Limited, comprising several plots, located between the Jewellery Quarter and Central Business District.
The project, which incorporates Grade II-listed buildings, will include three apartment blocks. The first will feature 79 apartments over six storeys complete with an undercroft car park. The second will be a mixed-use development with 138 apartments, three commercial spaces and six townhouses, over a total of ten floors; and the third will be a refurbished warehouse repurposed for living accommodation over four apartments.
Michael Cinnamond, Divisional Manager for SCS, explained: “We are seeing a shift away from student accommodation towards an increase in private rental schemes as uncertainty around future requirements for student accommodation, due to Brexit, continues to impact developers.”
The project will include the design, supply and installation of Prime SFX rainscreen cladding, from CA Building Products, coupled with Tectiva rainscreen, from Marley Eternit. In addition PPC aluminium copings, soffit cladding and bespoke picture frame surrounds will all be supplied and installed by SCS.
Cinnamond concluded: “Securing another residential development is testament to the strength of our ability to manage complex cladding projects to a high standard. We are delighted to be working on this project.”
Work is due to start in October and is scheduled for completion in January 2019.
