Paramount Business Park in St Mellons, Cardiff is home to a number of commercial properties owned by the Paramount Office Interiors, a leading interior design firm. The company wanted to update a building in the park, called Cypress House, to lease to local businesses.

Key to the brief was to create the same high quality external appeal of its neighbouring buildings and, more specifically, refurbishing the deteriorating roof in order to make it waterproof and thermally efficient. 

The refurbishment was completed in April 2017 with an investment of £125,000. Euroclad Refresh Systems provided the attractive exterior cladding and high performance roof, both featuring non-combustible insulation and inherent thermal and sound insulation. The company provided the contemporary, high quality appearance the project needed. 

The project's installer Central Roofing South Wales chose Euroclad's refresh systems to refurbish the roof and walls. Refresh systems offer a 25 year guarantee with quick and easy installation. Used on the roof and walls featuring 1600m2 of the 32/1000 trapezoidal profile in goosewing grey, the roofing is similar in appearance to the original roof but with a fresh new look and significant performance upgrade. This was key to this project, as it met the thermal insulation specification of 0.25W/m2K. 

The roofing was supplied in goosewing grey to meet the client’s requirement for a colour that best resembled the rest of the skyline at the business park.

The attractive refresh systems used to refurbish the walls are made up of more than 300m2 of opus plank cladding, with an energy efficient 0.35W/m2k U-value. The opus panels supplied were merlin grey, to meet the client’s requirement for a colour that best resembled the cladding on other buildings in the business park.

Tony Davies, from specialist installer Central Roofing South Wales, says, “Our brief from the client was to produce an attractive commercial building that complements and fits the style of the other properties in the business park. I have worked with Euroclad on a number of other projects and trust them to provide great products on time and within budget. We specified Euroclad products for this job and they were able to offer us several options to help create the desired finish. The colour-matches were great and the plank profiles were perfect for this project as they allowed us to install them quickly and easily around the many windows on the building.”

Founded in 1981, Euroclad offers a diverse range of steel and aluminium cladding systems in a range of options and colours. For over 35 years, the company has remained at the forefront of the industry, offering a cutting edge approach to high performance, cost effective cladding solutions.
