NVELOPE supports new Repton School building

A new build maths and PE teaching block at Repton School takes advantage of NVELOPE rainscreen cladding

Repton School, a co-educational English independent school, required their new two storey teaching block to mediate well between the award winning 400 Hall building, and the historic school buildings in the wider Repton campus. Derby-based main contractor B&K Building Services appointed specialist rainscreen installer A2O Cladding to install the rainscreen cladding on this project.  A2O Cladding worked alongside the project architect Franklin Ellis Architects to develop the detailed design for approximately 400m² of Trespa Meteon and Aerolite vertical cladding. This included the specification of NVELOPE’s NV3 system to support the rainscreen systems.

NVELOPE’s NV3 versatile cladding support system was the ideal solution for this project, as the brackets bear the weight of the cladding, absorbing the dead loads and the wind loads, which allows for adequate expansion and contraction. 

“We required a cost effective system which would neatly support the cladding, without disrupting the aesthetics of the building’s envelope” says Tim Gray, Project Director, A2O Cladding. “The NV3 system allowed us to install the cladding with concealed fixing, giving the department a seamless finish whilst maintaining its stunning appearance.”
