Customer Projects | Fitzwarren Court | K Systems
Project Overview

Fitzwarren Court is one of the highest buildings in Salford at 23 storeys and was a major refurbishment requiring an aesthetic and thermal upgrade. The building had originally been earmarked for demolition as part of a wider regeneration of the area, but plans were halted when Salix Homes secured funding to modernise the block. K Systems produced a bespoke high-rise specification which included various zonal wind load calculations optimising the longer-term safety and durability of the design. Our Approved Installer Hamilton Building Contractors used the K Systems M (Mineral Wool), Silicone TC Render and VBriQ (Acrylic Brick Slips). Various factors were taken into consideration throughout the installation process including a recessed windowsill and anti-perch detail (preventing birds from settling on the sills). The Fitzwarren Court project won the 'Refurbishment EWI – Insulation / Render Finish' category at the 2021 INCA awards.
