Neaco’s Techdek aluminium open grille system is extensively featured as cladding at a £6.3 million development in Finnieston, Glasgow, which provides a new 132/33kV substation on behalf of Scottish Power Energy Networks.
Designed by Dane Architectural and built by Miller Construction, the new 1,500-square-metre facility off Argyle Street is serving as a secure electricity supply for Scottish Power Energy Networks’ new development and organic growth within the west of Glasgow. Techdek aluminium cladding covers a large proportion of the substation building, which is approximately 80m in length and 16m in width.
Mark Benson of Dane Architectural said:
“We wanted an aesthetically pleasing façade and Neaco’s product was the most visually impressive and commercially viable choice. The completed installation looks very smart and Neaco’s technical support was excellent. They were very flexible in providing a design solution which accommodated the structural demands of the building and we would definitely work with NEACO again in future projects of this type.”
Techdek is also suitable for decking, access walkways, ventilation, staging, balustrade infills and stair treads.
