Knauf’s Technical Services Team played a critical role during the construction of the first phase of a brand new mixed-use residential and retail development in Salford.
BCEGI Construction’s £700m Middlewood Locks development is one of the most sought-after sites in Salford, centred around the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal and with key employment space and major transport infrastructure close by.
Subcontractor SCS selected Knauf Windliner for the job. Knauf Windliner was put to the test when unforeseen circumstances meant the building’s insulation had to be removed. This left Windliner exposed to the inclement British weather for six months whilst the insulation and external façade were re-applied. Contractors were safe in the knowledge that Knauf Windliner has been independently tested and third-party certified by the British Board of Agrément for its water resistance and weather-tightness during the construction phase and prior to the installation of the external façade.
Used on numerous construction projects throughout the UK and Europe, Knauf Windliner provides the ideal solution for architects and contractors seeking an external sheathing board that will protect their buildings regardless of the elements.
