Multi Facade Building envelopes

5th January, 2013

A new Sainsbury's store has recently been built in Prestwick, South Ayrshire as part of a local redevelopment scheme. This building, is quite different to the 'traditional' image of a supermarket and is a stunning example of what can be achieved through a combination of façade options all backed up by Rainspan support panels.

The façade, a mixture of steel faced Rockspan panels, blended into elevations of timber battens and stone tiles gives the building a unique external envelope. As with a majority of building projects the build schedule was of critical importance and Rainspan's quick installation and removal of the façade from the critical path helped the project keep as efficient a schedule as possible with the supermarket opening well ahead of schedule.
