Block F, Downing Plaza, Gallowgate, Newcastle, UK

ESL were contracted by one of our most valued UK clients George Downing Construction Ltd. Block F is a contemporary student accommodation development on the same site as the British Business School, situated next to St James Park in Gallowgate, Newcastle. ESL designed, supplied and installed 5000M2 of EnviroSips Structural Insulated Panel System as a backing wall structure which enabled the building to be weathered much quicker than traditional methods of construction. The external facade then received high quality brushed aluminium and bespoke terracotta rainscreen systems. This fast track facade was complete on time and within budget for the September 2012 acedemic student intake.
