The primary aim of the project was to improve the thermal fabric performance of the block and also to replicate the existing look. The second key criteria was to ensure that all the systems used on the project were limited combustibility to meet the current building regulations for buildings over the height of 18 meters in England. We specified a combination of K Systems M VBriQ and K Systems M VBriQ+ to ensure we met the aesthetic planning requirements and comply with building regulations for resistance to fire in high-rise buildings.
