Facade plates with a unique colour and shape

The challenge for the construction of a warehouse and offices for Heylen Warehouses was to find a beautiful facade cladding in earth tones. Tata Steel delivered the goods with the colour Seren Copper, whilst the desired verticality was achieved by combining 4 types of plates of varying profile. In total, around 4,200 m² or 34.6 tonnes of cladding was installed: 2,150 m² of single-walled asymmetrical profiles mounted on underlying liner trays and the remaining 2,050 m² of cladding mounted on Galva Omega profiles. The 740 continuous metres of finishing pieces are folded from flat 0.75 mm sheets with a 60 µm prism coating and the warehouse roofing is made up of a total of 6,500 m² of 0.88 mm thick 135R steel decking weighing 72 tonnes. The only steel in the structure of the building is in the roof beams of the office building, the canopies, and the rafting structures for the roof domes. Tubes and beams are in S235JR steel.
