Chatham Place, Reading

Object Data

  • Landmark residential development in Reading
  • Height of the building 18 floors in the North Block, and 8 floors in the South Block
  • The South block features a curved facade
  • To achieve the staggered panel joint design, Fischer tophat sections were fixed horizontally onto the Metsec - this allowed the wall brackets to be positioned vertically to meet the design brief

Project Details

  • Facade surface 4,000m2 , cladding material is Aluminium cassette
  • Subframe FischerEVT wall brackets and vertical rails
  • Maximal panel size on the facade is 1800x284m, density of the cladding panel is 2800 Kg/m3
  • Building Substructure concrete and Metsec 1.2mm. FischerEVT wall brackets fixed using Ejot teks and Fischer FBN 10/20 A4 throughbolts
  • Balcony soffit design by Fischer Facade Engineering department, fixed using Fischer FAZ throughbolts, to conform to ETA option 1 for safety critical applications
  • RJ Fixings supplied the total fixing package Metsec installation to panel fixings. Site pull-tests were provided for all substrate fixings to confirm ETA loadings. RJ are CFA approved testers and distributors
