aluminium ‘Pollard Street’s New Icon’ Fabrica is a new ‘Grade A’ 21,000 sq, ft office development located in New Islington, in the heart of Manchester. The landmark project has been awarded a BREEAM rating of Excellent. The Aluprof MB-SR50 Curtain Wall system was chosen for the project by 5plus Architects for its slim lines and high performance. Inspired by Manchester’s Cotton Heritage, the facade is partially screened by bespoke perforated anodised aluminium sheets. The screens offer both solar shading and privacy to occupants and work in combination with an efficient VRF air conditioning system. Bright yellow insulated panels span between the floor spandrel panels giving the facade a striking contrast against the RAL 7016 grey powder coated curtain wall system. On the same development is a new Ibis Budget Hotel built to the Etap standard design which incorporates Aluprof ’s MB 70US window system together with MB-SR50 for the ground floor screens and curtain wall.
