CAVENDISH PLACE is a new five-story luxury mixed-use development in the centre of Clapham Common, achieved using Bailey’s Platinum Rainscreen Cladding.
The £8m development is part of Clapham Park’s major regeneration project to transform the area into the exemplar of residential space in London. The building comprises of 8000 sq ft of grade A office accommodation and 40 luxury apartments across six levels.
Project managed by Marbank Construction Limited, the clean, confident front of Cavendish Place manages to simultaneously blend in with its surroundings and stand out as a luxurious residential space. The flats were designed to provide residents with the highest quality of life.
Marbank take a design-led approach to tendering and requested three specific variations of anodised bronze for the panels.
Marbank’s project manager, Graham Dow, co-ordinated the design elements of the project and was impressed with Bailey’s Rainscreen:
“The panels Bailey custom built for us were great. We wanted three different types of anodised bronze to give the building a luxurious feel but not something that would jump out too much and clash with the residential surroundings.”
The slight but significant variation of colours posed a challenge to Bailey when packaging up the panels for transport. To make sure subcontractor, Malone Roofing, were able to easily install the cladding, Bailey had to label and categorise each panel and create very specific instructions.
Bailey worked with main contractor and approved installer, Malone Roofing to deliver rainscreen cladding for the project. There were 1400 panels in total over 700sqm.
Malone Roofing Estimator, Ron Taylor, commented:
“We had no difficulties installing the cladding as the instructions set out for us were clear and precise. Bailey’s products are always straightforward and of good quality. We would recommend them on future projects as their technical support and attention to detail has been great.”
Bailey’s high-quality, design-led products, partnered with expert advice, achieved Marbank Construction’s modern aesthetic and blended in with the city’s surroundings.
