Southwater Regeneration Scheme
Cladding and Facades | Off-Highway VRS
Telford and Wrekin Council first proposed the Southwater Regeneration Scheme approximately 10 years’ prior to the completion of the project. Through the years’ of consultations and planning it became apparent that this project was quintessential to the transformation of Telford’s commercial village and totalled £250m. The regeneration of the Southwater area is a partnership between Telford & Wrekin Council, Southwater Event Group, private sector investors and is part funded by the Homes & Community Agency.
Berry Systems was awarded the contract to refurbish the Southwater mutli-storey car park.
A key feature of the Southwater Regeneration project in Telford is the construction of a 600 space multi-storey car park, with potential for expansion by a further 350 spaces in future years. Associated Architects of Birmingham discussed the cladding requirements with Berry Systems at an early stage in the project’s development. This enabled Berry Systems to demonstrate their in depth expertise by designing a cladding system that met the pedestrian loading requirements of BS 6180 and removed the need for additional pedestrian handrail on interior faces. The expanded metal mesh cladding was produced and installed by our own team for contractor Morgan Sindall. By rotating the expanded mesh panels, various shading could be achieved. We also installed vehicle safety barriers at the split levels inside the car park from our extensive range of floor and column mounted barrier systems.
Vison webb expanded aluminium mesh cladding was specified. Berry Systems met the specification but also ensured the cladding was compliant to carry pedestrian loading. Berry Beam Barrier with RB1 Posts was also essential to the design so early engagement with the architect was critical in ensuring the project was completed on time and to the proposed specification.
