Parkside is a new 1,500m2 building designed and built as a collaborative and creative space for Imperial War Museums’ staff in Southwark, London. Architects Jestico + Whiles developed IWM’s vision into a striking design and Reds10, delivered the building using the latest off-site construction techniques. The three-storey building provides a flexible workspace with formal and informal meeting areas, a café and breakout spaces.
Eurobrick has over 30 years’ experience working with off-site construction companies to provide a flexible, real brick finish. They offer brick and stone slip systems to suit any project and supplied their popular P-Clad system for the IWM project, having worked with Reds10 on a number of projects already.
Approximately 890m2 of P-Clad was supplied, along with specially ordered and cut Wienerberger Marziale bricks which have bright buff tones and distressed features for a weathered, traditional look. Eurobrick also supplied bespoke brick soffits and cills for the technically challenging design, along with whole Marziale bricks for the construction of a boundary wall.
One of Eurobrick’s most experienced approved installers, Façade Install, carried out the brick slip installation partly in the factory and partly in-situ, once the modular building had been delivered to site. Using P-Clad helped this complex design become a reality and assisted with successful project delivery.
“The IWM project used brick slips as the external finish throughout but incorporated a number of challenging details. Eurobrick helped develop and deliver solutions to enable these details to be constructed. Reds10, the architects and client are delighted with the new facility. We have worked with Eurobrick on a number of projects and found them very helpful and responsive, providing excellent service.” Reds10
The project brought together offsite and traditional construction techniques to deliver a complex modular build, with difficult site conditions in Central London. The end result is an impressive building with a level of detail that proves the versatility of P-Clad perfectly.
