Burton Borough School using Mechslip and Ibstock Himley Ebony Black
Durability, safety and aesthetics needed to work together for the Burton Borough School project. The Ibstockclient (Telford and Wrekin Council) and the building’s designer (TACP Architects) wanted a highly attractive facade solution which is also safe, durable and which makes a statement with its appearance.
With a projecting header pattern on the front elevation of the building, made by alternating between half bricks and full bricks, the new sports hall creates a fascinating and truly eye-catching impression.
Safety is paramount as this building will be used primarily by schoolchildren, it was especially important that it was built using a durable solution which can stand up not only against weather conditions, but is fully non-combustible.
