SureClad®️ SureStone®️ facade for prestige offices

SureClad®️ SureStone®️ facade for prestige offices

Shackerley’s SureStone®️ engineered stone cladding system has been specified for the complex 2164m2 facade of a prestigious commercial office project in London’s sought after St James’s. The project draws on Shackerley’s technical expertise in unitised facade systems and ISO 9001 certified precision manufacturing capabilities.

Using unitised frames supplied by the customer, we created the unitised modules by cutting our SureStone®️ engineered stone material to exacting tolerances and mechanically fixing each piece to the frames to produce specific and complex details, with meticulous fabrication to achieve seamless joints.

The prestige and heritage of the location meant that it was important to select a facade material that complements the quality, aesthetics and materiality of surrounding building facades. Shackerley’s SureStone®️ engineered stone cladding system was specified in a Portland Stone-like pale beige colourway, which met the need for a robust and attractive stone facade, whilst also delivering design flexibility and sustainability advantages for the project.

Shackerley provided extra large format, 3050 x1250 x20mm SureStone®️ facade panels, providing a seamless floor to floor facade finish with a natural stone aesthetic. To meet the complexities of the facade design, we custom manufactured three variants of unitised modules, producing 320 type-A modules, each comprising three facade panels with an average length of 2800mm, along with 318 type-B modules, each of which are fabricated from four facade panels with an average length of 955mm, and 198 column modules, involving three facade panels with an average length of 1500mm.

All facade panels and unitised modules were manufactured in-house at our ISO 9001 certified Lancashire factories and delivered to site as installation-ready, fully-prefabricated units, aligned to the installation schedule.

Shackerley’s SureClad®️ SureStone®️ engineered facade system offers exceptional quality and is produced with 95% natural stone aggregate and zero Portland cement content. This ensures an authentic natural stone finish for the facade, with a consistent and extremely robust A2-s1,d0 rated cladding material to BS EN13501-1. Every panel is precision cut to size using the advanced manufacturing equipment at our UK cladding factories and stainless steel undercut anchors are used to attach fixings to the rear of the facade panels, which are fully-prefabricated for speed, ease, and consistency of installation on site.
