The University of Liverpool, Active Learning Labs
The Engineering Department was enthusiastic about the idea of illuminating the 826 glass panel façade to the building. The Lab is lit with hundreds of LEDs and can be seen as far away as Wirral.
The new roof area was to be covered with nearly a hundred concrete plinths that supported the track to the window cleaner’s cradle, along with many other roof protrusions. The walls were also to have hundreds of angle brackets, penetrating through the wall off the steel work to support the glass rain screen cladding which was illuminated at night.
Holloway Cook Associates installed a new liquid applied waterproofing system that could efficiently protect the building and be easily applied to the numerous details on the walls and roof area.
