POWERCLAD® Scaffold & containment sheeting
Powerclad used in one of London’s largest regenerations
ITP’s Powerclad FR scaffold sheeting is being used to facilitate construction at one of London’s largest regeneration projects following its installation at Hallsville Quarter in Canning Town.
A joint venture partnership between London Borough of Newham and Linkcity, the Hallsville Quarter site forms part of the overall Canning Town and Custom House SPD regeneration framework, a £3.7bn project providing 1,100 new homes, over 323,000 sq ft of leisure and retail space, and more than 32,000 sq ft of space for community facilities, as well as new public spaces, pedestrian links, cyclist provision and 1,100 secure parking spaces.
Described as the first and most significant phase of the transformation, Hallsville Quarter is delivering contemporary living, leisure and retail space and facilities that are vital in creating a thriving community and establishing a legacy for Canning Town. Designed by Hawkins Brown, Phase 3 features private rental homes, 143 shared ownership units, 199 affordable homes including 50 extra-care apartments, 88,049 sq ft of retail and leisure space and integrated health centre.
The phase features an extensive installation of Powerclad FR to provide protection and containment on high-rise buildings under construction. The sheeting is third-party tested and certified to achieve fire retardancy certification to TS 62 for external use and TS 63 for internal use for both plain and printed sheeting. Its fire safety credentials provide full compliance with requirements for projects valued over £25m as stated in the Joint Code of Practice on the Protection from Fire of Construction Sites and Buildings Undergoing Renovation.
Powerclad FR has been used on various other landmark London projects in recent years, including the deep retrofit and expansion of BT’s former headquarters near St Paul’s Cathedral, and Royal Eden Docks, a prestigious mixed-use development east of Canary Wharf from Mount Anvil Homes. The sheeting was also used to facilitate the transformation of London’s iconic Old War Office site into a world-class luxury hotel and apartment complex.
