PROJECT FOCUS: PINCE VENT SHOPPING CENTRE
Location: Chenneviere sur Marne, France
Wall/Façade products: BENCHMARK Evolution Axis
With many large brands preparing to occupy the new commercial centre, the speed at which the building was installed was paramount.
Unlike traditional multiple-component rainscreen systems, the BENCHMARK Evolution range offers single-component, factory-assembled panels that can be quickly and easily fitted with the aid of mechanical lifting equipment through a single-fix installation process.
Meeting the design challenge
A standard metal structure was used, but the panels were anything but standard. With vertical installation, curved panels and a range of colours, the architect was able to create a unique building that fits in perfectly with its surroundings.
BENCHMARK Evolution Axis is a highly streamlined, sleek unprofiled insulated panel system; the perfect solution for achieving a minimalist façade on buildings with large surface areas.
Smooth and flawless in appearance, BENCHMARK Evolution Axis is available in 1mm width increments from 600mm to 1000mm, and can be installed either vertically or horizontally to achieve the desired effect.
BENCHMARK Evolution Axis panels are the only insulated panels in the French market to have succeeded in meeting the rigorous evaluation of the Commission Centrale de Securité (CSS); allowing installation in certain ERP buildings and ensuring that all stakeholders benefit from the advantages of insulated panel.
