With several stops marked out on the future Crossrail route, new-builds on the rise, and an impressive range of ‘Outstanding’ schools, this culturally diverse borough of Ealing is becoming more popular than ever. To meet this popularity new-build property is on the rise however there is strict guidance on design of new buildings.
Licata Building Systems in partnership with Build-Therm Services Limited were commissioned to specify and supply the facade systems for The Vale apartments. A prestigious block in Acton, The Vale was subject to planning guidance that insisted the block remained in-keeping with the more traditional neighbouring blocks.
The system installed is Licata FireSafe Brick slips. Using a 15 mm extruded brick slip the system is one of the lightest systems available on the market, coupled with class A2 fire performance and a U-value of 0.18W/mK.
