Ancon provides BREEAM accommodation

3,000 metres of Ancon brick support angle and over 800 Ancon windposts have been supplied to the construction of new student accommodation at the University of Liverpool??s Chatham Street campus. The project has been designed, by Stride Treglown, to be BREEAM Excellent. The concrete frame with traditional brick cladding provides the buildings with thermal mass, which will moderate temperature fluctuations and minimise heating and cooling costs during occupancy. Construction of the attractive façade, thought to be one of the largest brick packages awarded in the UK in recent years, involved the support of masonry at every floor level by an Ancon stainless steel support system. The support angles feature slots in some sections to allow lintels to be fixed to the underside at window openings, and are radiussed in other locations to support curved brickwork. The Ancon system was designed and scheduled for manufacture to suit the site schedule. It was supplied by SIG Construction Accessories and installed by brickwork subcontractor PLF Brickwork.
