Many architects face the challenge of designing buildings that do not only fulfil their dreams when it comes to design, but which also ensure optimum fire safety. There are several ways to comply with safety and building regulations, but what is the best option when you don’t want to compromise on design?
Innovative façade cladding and insulation
Because of the height, the building type (housing) and number of windows, it was immediately clear for architect Morawiec that fire safety would play an important part in refurbishing the Bièvre towers located in a suburb of Paris. “After we had done our research very thoroughly, we decided to choose a combination of stone wool isolation from ROCKWOOL and Rockpanel Woods and Colours for the façade cladding.” Although it was the first time for the architect group to use this innovative solution, it certainly won’t be the last time: everyone is very enthusiastic about the result.
