“NACWL have played a key role in giving a grade II listed Library a new lease of life, creating a new facility for the community of Plumstead. The contemporary design and installation to the existing building and new extension needed to consider the requirements set out by English Heritage and the architect’s vision. NACWL’s technical knowledge and support were key to arriving at the best solution and the project team were pro-active in ensuring that a quality install was achieved, particularly when dealing with some challenging interfaces with other trades.”
Paul Fletcher Divisional Director – Osborne
NACWL were appointed by Osborne to design, supply and install new curtain walling, SFS, single-ply roofing, hot melt roofing and bespoke glazed roof lanterns to the Grade II listed building, Plumstead Library.
The existing library structure was brittle and meant that additional techniques and build-ups were required so that the structure was not disturbed. We introduced a repairing rubber screed to the roofs so that the new hot melt layer had something to bind onto. We provided the SFS package, used to create a backing structure for the traditional brickwork. In between sections of SFS were large curtain wall screens with a mix of capped and SG finishes, creating some stunning bespoke arrangements, such as the new entrance foyer and bespoke glass link-between roof. Other work such as how the integrated rooflights into the slate roof would be weathered was carefully planned with Osbornes. The GF curtain wall was formed to a 90-degree corner with a fall in the pavement in both directions, meaning that lining the bottom transom became a very highly sensitive area.
