Customer: Total Facades
Project: Eltham Leisure Centre
Architect: Peddle Thorp
Requirements: 500m2 of 3.0mm aluminum perforated flat sheet, powder coated Zeus Lunar Grey Matt.
The luxurious Eltham Leisure Centre project has been completed with high-quality material and a stylish outlook. The Leisure Centre project was a complex job and was completed with dedication and mastery in modern architecture.
The building features a stylish segmented framework clad in 3.0mm Aluminium perforated flat sheet which snakes around the building exterior in an artistic wave effect.
Drawings were supplied by a site surveyor in which we had to take is curved drawings and turn them into a flat pattern emulating the existing sub structure. We did this in our engineering team at FORM 2000 who also performed the perforating. FORM 2000 are equipped with 2 AMADA turret punches perfect for this type of work. Fed by a “2 Tier” stacker, pallets of sheets were loaded at the end of each shift and the automatic feed from the stacker would have the AMADA 3510 turret punching material all night unmanned in what’s referred to as “lights out manufacturing”. The extensive tooling on site at FORM 2000 also allows for an array of holes sizes, shapes and patterns. FORM 2000 also performed the powder coating requirements for the project with their continuous chain drive line perfect for this type of work.
With the addition of FORM 2000 and Britannia Metal Industries we now offer a larger range of architectural facade options, with the inhouse ability to laser cut, turret punch, automatic panel bending and powder coating our cladding range has exploded. We also have over 10 full time engineers on hand to assist with designs, product manufacturability and drawings ensuring our service offer for architects, designers, builders and installers are second to none.
The Eltham Leisure Centre has been a great success and will go down as a flag ship project for our new INFORM perforated range.
