CCM forms a natural green patina, transforming its bright natural finish to a distinguished, classic look.

Provides design flexibility, as the material can be moulded into complex shapes and it is lighter weight than heavy gauge copper.

What makes composite material the ideal choice for rainscreen cladding?

 

The rise in popularity of composite material as the material of choice for rainscreen cladding has been exponential over recent years; in a recent report by Grand View Research Inc. on the predicted growth in the rainscreen cladding market over the next decade, composite material was the leading material, accounting for over 25% of total market volume in 2014.

From the very start Sotech’s guidance on material selection, setting parameters and assistance with detailing helped to achieve the design intent while meeting all the standards of the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology.

Not only were we impressed with the accuracy of the system but Sotech’s approach to sub-structure and building tolerances were invaluable on a project where panel alignment, both horizontally and vert ically, was critical.

Together with the installer and the envelope specialist Lakesmere, Sotech certainly delivered on its promise of creating a cladding package that looks fantastic and will stand the test of time.”

One of the keys to the success of the project was the early introduction of the best subcontractors available to us in the market. Those who we knew could deliver the Client and Design Team’s aspirations, provide us with excellent technical support and rigorous commercial advice.

As ever the development, design and procurement process was exceptionally well managed and efficiently and sensitively delivered through each work stage, to completion and beyond.
