Rockpanel external facades have created a unique outer skin at the Hertfordshire County Council primary school, helping it harmonise within its surroundings and bring joy to staff and pupils.
MATRIX DOORS from Boom (Belgium) has been a specialist in sectional doors for 30 years, with the second generation of the Nijs family now also active in the company. Over the years, the independent Belgian family business has specialized in the manufacture, sale and installation of sectional doors in both the private and industrial sectors. During the growth trajectory, the need for a new office building arose. BAO Architects from Bornem were commissioned to design a striking and modern new base for the Client. However, because MATRIX DOORS were familiar with the Rockpanel brand, they selected and installed the facade boards themselves.
The new primary school Sint-Jozef Sint-Pieter in Blankenberge (Belgium) is a real eye-catcher. The colourful Rockpanel facade boards give the building a fresh look and the necessary robustness, which is very important as the school is located near the coast. AVDK aRCHITECten opted for a compact building with a split-level system that is also reflected in the colour play of the facade.
The new school building of the KA Pegasus school in Belgian Ostend, which was completed in 2016, proves that bold architecture can also pay off in school construction. The design by architectural firm Urban Platform focuses on complementarity and contrast between the materials used. The striking windows are alternated with facade cladding with a warm, authentic look. The choice fell on Rockpanel Woods Teak cladding. “An aesthetically high-quality, cost-effective and maintenance-friendly solution,” the architects say.
VM Geveltechniek renovated the facade of a residential building in Zwolle (NL). The old, flaking and peeling plywood was replaced with future proof Rockpanel Woods facade cladding. This has improved fire safety by leaps and bounds, while maintaining the warm and harmonious feel of the facade.
A beautiful, future-proof and (almost) energy-neutral building has been constructed on the exact location where the high school Christelijk Lyceum Veenendaal opened its doors more than 50 years ago.
