Skyline from Alumasc chosen for award-winning O2 building

Posted by david.luukas


O2HQ_2_lowA unique ‘aerofoil’ shaped fascia soffit system from our Skyline range has been used for the O2 UK headquarters in Slough.

Having won a 2009 International Property Award and a UK Commercial Property Award for its stunning architecture, the striking new building, which forms part of a 200,000 sq ft campus, was also recently short listed for the 2010 RIBA Awards South.

Our technical team worked alongside London-based architects, Nicholas Hare, from the outset, producing a variety of CAD drawings showing how the bespoke Skyline system would appear on different building elevations.

The resulting nosed design has a pointed section supported by concealed webbed brackets. The nosing connects to sloping soffits in modular form which were made in 500mm wide sections so that the joint coincided with the mullions. The installation was carried out by our Approved Contractor, S & J Roofing Ltd.

Skyline is the ideal fascia soffit choice for new build roof perimeters. Manufactured from high quality, polyester powder coated aluminium, it is available in four bold generic shapes plus bespoke designs. As well as design versatility, Skyline offered many benefits to the project. It is lightweight, durable and totally weatherproof, making it easy to handle and fix with minimal maintenance requirements.

Levolux, also part of the The Alumasc Group plc, provided a bespoke Solar Shading solution for the O2 building, helping it to achieve a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating and an EPC rating of B.
