Brick facades come in all shapes and sizes, as modern architecture continues to blur the lines between tradition and innovation.
We are thrilled to see the progress at the 85 bedroom, 5-star Blakes Hotel in Shoreditch, where Build-Therm Services Ltd are busy installing our innovative, A1 rated Mechslip brick cladding system using 440mm long Linear bricks from Ibstock Brick. The system is BBA certified for a multitude of brick dimensions and allows for the use of linear bricks up to almost 0.5metres long!
Compromising of 14 floors overall, this challenging project incorporates 4 floors of basement level to provide the high level of front of house and facilities attributable to a 5-star hotel, on a tight and constrained corner site. Two floors of office accommodation have been incorporated at first and second floor level, accessed from a shared entrance hub at street level.
