Farrat Structural Thermal Breaks used to affix external signage at £27.5M Elekta ‘Centre of Excellence’
17th May 2018
The ‘Centre of Excellence’ scheme is adjacent to and will integrate with, Elekta’s existing UK headquarters in the Manor Royal Business District on a five acre site, combining both its research and development team, and its global product support and administration functions, which will integrate into the new premises. The project was master-planned by architects R H Partnership.
Farrat were approached by the client, to provide a Structural Thermal Break that could be used to isolate the connection between the external signage and the building frame, to reduce thermal bridging.
Farrat manufactured and supplied Farrat TBK plates, which were precision cut to a tight tolerance from the customers’ fabrication drawings. This is the first time structural thermal breaks have been used on a connection of this nature.
As the flagship office scheme in the Manor Royal Business District, ‘Cornerstone’ is a new commercial development that has been pre-let to Elektra, a global leader in the development of state-of-the-art tools and treatment planning systems used across the spectrum of cancer care.
