Victoria Halls Management opened a new student accommodation scheme in Vincent’s Walk, Southampton. Designed by ArchitecturePLB and constructed by Galliford Try, the 283 bed scheme turned a run down former nightclub and retail site into new homes for students in the city. The buildings feature Metal Technology 435HI+ windows, System 17 curtain walling, Aquarian Gebrik brickslip cladding and Rainscreen panels.

The external cladding supplier’s Gebrik brick cladding system was the perfect choice for Vincent’s Walk, an impressive development in the heart of the city by Victoria Hall Management.

Chosen for its exemplary aesthetics, reliability and time savings, Gebrik was also vital in overcoming one of the project’s main challenges. As a select company from Aquarian’s Approved Installer Network, cladding specialist T&T Facades made use of more than 4000m2 of the Gebrik system.

Aquarian’s expert team worked closely to support the project through design and installation, with attention given particularly to the two separate build-ups, which included a 15mm drained cavity with timber battens and a larger cavity using helping hand brackets to achieve deep window reveals. As the building is over 18m it was also crucial that any approved details were in accordance with Gebrik’s BR135 Assessment report.
