Specified by Architecture 00, buildings C1 and D1 fully utilise the unparalleled flexibility of this mesh for façade cladding, balustrading, bird netting and forming a state of the art rooftop Multi-use games area.

The transparency of the mesh is intended to strip back to the most basic of building components, while affording tenants with a truly impressive view of the surroundings.  The stairs and lifts are also on the exterior of the building, truly connecting the interior and exterior of the buildings.

About the Project

Rope diamond ferruled mesh installed as decorative and safety balustrade infills on the recently refurbished, world famous Transporter Bridge over the Tees in Middlesbrough.

As well as providing strength and security, this modern design pattern aesthetically blends perfectly with the Edwardian architectural metalwork.

The stainless steel Rope diamond ferruled mesh was customized for this project to 80mm aperture and 50mm aperture.

About the Project

Officially opened in January 2016, Leeds University’s innovative multi-storey car park features Kirkstone perforated metal panels installed as a unique cladding design, with beautiful eye-catching night-time illumination.

Each Kirkstone square panel consists of 2 high points and 2 low points on opposite corners, joined by a central node, generating a 3D relief. Adjacent corners share a node point, as one geometric template panel is rotated repeatedly through 90 degrees to create an undulating surface precisely designed to achieve the free area required for passive natural ventilation. Perforations in the hyperbolic paraboloid panels are therefore both aesthetic and functional.

The Locker team was integral to the success of the project, from start to finish. Our designers worked in partnership with architect Carey Jones (CJCT) to devise the optimum cladding material. All options were considered, including fabric tension mesh, until the final perforated metal panel design was created.

For Wates Group (Shepherd Construction) Locker delivered structural engineering, design, fabrication and installation of the Kirkstone perforated panels, plus a green wall tensioned mesh façade to the lower floors along with all supporting mullions, steelwork and bracketry.

The innovative structure of the car park façade along with the high quality of the end product has resulted in a shortlisting for a RICS award under the ‘Design through Innovation’ category.
