The client wanted to update Cypress House for lease to local businesses. Creating the same high-quality external appeal of its sister properties within the business park was key, but the deteriorating roof also needed to be refurbished to transform it into one that was aesthetically pleasing, waterproof and thermally efficient.
The refurbishment of Cypress House was completed in April 2017, with decorative exterior cladding and a high-performance roof, both featuring non-combustible insulation with inherent thermal and sound insulation.
Euroclad Group products provided the traditional, high quality appearance that the project needed. The project’s installer, Central Roofing South Wales, chose the Euroclad Refresh Systems to refurbish the roof and walls. Refresh systems offer a 25-year system guarantee and quick and easy installation. They were used on the roof and walls, with the roof featuring 1600m2 of the 32/1000 trapezoidal external profile in Goosewing Grey, similar in appearance to the original roof but providing a fresh new look and a significant performance upgrade. This was key to this project, as it met the thermal insulation specification of 0.25W/m2K.
326m2 of Opus plank cladding also provided the attractive visual of the Refresh System used to refurbish the walls, with an energy efficient 0.35W/m2K U-value. The Opus panels were supplied in Merlin Grey, which was chosen to meet the client’s request for a colour that best resembled the cladding on the other buildings in the business park.
Tony Davies from specialist installer Central Roofing South Wales, which installed the wall and roof systems and profiles, said: “Our brief from the client was to produce an attractive commercial building that complements and fits the style of the other properties in the business park. “I have worked with Euroclad Group on a number of other projects and trust them to provide great products on time and within budget. We specified Euroclad Group products for this job and they were able to offer us several options to help create the desired finish. The colour-matches were great and the plank profiles were perfect for this project as they allowed us to install them quickly and easily around the many windows on the building.”
