Gateway Plaza, Barnsley, UK

This iconic multi-level building rises above Barnsley town centre in North Yorkshire is a muliti-use residential and commercial space, with a backing wall system formed using EnviroSIPS 125mm structural insulated wall panels and a facade consisting of flat composite wall panels and terracotta rainscreen cladding all designed and installed by European Sheeting Ltd.

The Envirosips through-wall building system was installed outboard of the concrete frame via a specially designed bracket system allowing for all structural loadings and accommodating building movement while providing the developer with additional sellable floor space within the building. The system also ensured a fast speed of build gaining a weathered facade early in the programme releasing internal trades far in advance of a traditional block work or metal stud work inner wall system.
