In today’s construction industry, the aesthetic benefits of metal cladding are many and varied. But it must be stated that they can rarely be considered in isolation from the other two significant advantages: Construction and Energy Efficiency and Cost Efficiency. Without these two, the aesthetic benefits and design opportunities coming from metal are unlikely to be acknowledged. But, there’s also the fact that they are there, and once a designer is committed to the project, their creative opportunities are limitless.
To see how the metal cladding has virtually reinvented the industrial unit, one must visit any new industrial estate. An array of construction creativity offered by metal is shown in almost every part of a project: modern roof designs that are impossible to consider through traditional construction methods, long and creative wall elevations with the use of wood, brickwork, render and even glass that when incorporated within a metal-clad elevation shows the strength of design. These methods would not have been possible when the entire construction elevation was stuck in the past.
Metal cladding is very popular and vital in construction nowadays. The versatility of metal and its ability to accommodate any required design is critical for a designer/architect. We have hospitals, airports, schools, and many public and commercial buildings. Not only that, but residential developments also, such as incorporating coloured rainscreen or louvres, have emerged in many housing designs all because of metal cladding.
Let’s start with Color, which can make or break a design in most cases. With many specialist finishes offered by metal cladding, the palette of colours a designer or architect can work with is almost limitless and cost-effective. Another factor is Detail, which in a metal envelope system, so much can be considered with the benefit of knowing that the extraordinary is possible. For example, slim verge overhangs can be achieved with the use metal roofing system, and with that, the detail opportunities are as immense as design opportunities. Lastly, there is Refurbishment. With the help of metal cladding, a building or estate that has come to the end of its lifespan can be given a new and excellent design opportunity. Providing tired looking and often no longer functional building with new and exciting show of life.
In conclusion, today’s construction sector has come a long way, and metal cladding is a big part of that evolution. The creativity that metal cladding incorporates may be purely functional and may not give significant consideration in aesthetics. Still, it makes a functional “box” turn into a design statement.
