EQUITONE [natura] Adds Up For Refurbished Maths Block
Marley Eternit's architectural fibre cement facade materials have changed the face of Scarborough Sixth Form College as part of a £2m refurbishment project.
EQUITONE [natura], in four contrasting colours, was specified by Seven Architecture as an overclad solution for the College's Maths and Arts Block.
The fibre cement facade material replaced the existing brick and UPVC cladding, which was looking tired and portrayed an outdated image of the school to visitors.
Seven Architecture chose EQUITONE to fulfil their brief of transforming the Maths and Arts Block into a more appealing, inspiring and energy efficient building.
Graham Boyce, Architect at Seven Architecture, said: "Our brief was to rejuvenate the existing Maths and Arts Block to create a more contemporary and appealing building. We chose to overclad it in colours that referenced the existing red brick and slate roofed campus. We used landscaped fibre cement panels, with staggered joints to further emphasise the linear nature of the building."
Graham added: "We selected Marley Eternit's architectural fibre cement facade materials to create a modern yet subtly appealing overclad solution. The matt nature of the panels ensured that the building was able to reference the masonry on other college buildings. The refurbished Maths and Arts building now provides a statement for the college to show the quality of their campus and the facilities on offer for prospective students."
