Back to the 1980s

A £multi-million office space, recently developed in central Reading as part of a scheme to replace a 1980s five-storey building with a new Grade A commercial building, used systems from Hueck.

The new build development attains a BREEAM excellent standard for sustainability, it has been designed to blend with adjacent structures of historic significance.

After being appointed by John Sisk, specialist façade contractor, English Architectural Glazing (EAG) delivered a building envelope that combines unitised curtain wall, windows, and doors, using Hueck aluminium building systems.

EAG chose the following high-performance systems in the design and build of the Aldwych House cladding: Hueck Trigon L, suitable for vertical/polygonal curtain walls; Hueck Trigon 50, which offers a mullion-transom construction for vertical, slanting, level, or polygonal curtain walling designsl; and the Hueck Lambda 77L, one of Hueck’s flagship door profiles.

Leon Friend, Hueck UK managing director, said: “There are complementary colour shades for the surrounding masonry, provided by the projecting copper feature rainscreen elements. EAG has integrated this beautifully with the unitised curtain wall design.”

The faceted unitised curtain wall displays curved horizontal feature extrusions at the corner of the building, above the main entrance, incorporating floor-to-ceiling glazed areas. The overall facade quantity for the new office building was approximately 3,500m2, and was designed to provide maximum levels of natural light.
