Project Overview

NV Buildings is one of the most prestigious and iconic residential sites in Greater Manchester. The distinctive sail-shaped buildings are a major landmark in Salford Quays. The blocks have a curved main elevation providing a unique aesthetic on the skyline and are one of the most popular developments in the area. With a prominent location in Salford Quays, adjacent to the Lowry Theatre and Media City TV headquarters, the apartment blocks feature in many iconic photos of the area. The project itself was funded by the Building Safety Fund, the Government’s £4.5 billion fund to remove unsafe non-ACM cladding on residential and mixed-use properties that are 18 metres and over and do not meet building safety regulations. Our Approved Installer QFF Facades were contracted to complete the exterior wall insulation and rendering which upgraded the fire performance of the cladding, ensuring the safety of both the building and residents. The K Systems Exicco M, Drained Cavity EWI System for steel frame buildings, utilising Mineral Wool insulation, was used on the NV Buildings project, with Silicone Thin Coat render as the finish. In total three 15 storey blocks were refurbished, with a safe and thermally efficient façade solution.
