Complex and creative zinc facades at - Yarm School

This RIBA Award winning project by Associated Architects is the latest to headline the UK web site. Associated Architects of Birmingham were appointed by Yarm School to create a master plan, with the centre piece being the Princess Alexandra Auditorium. This 800 seat performance venue with studio theatre and performance suites is an inspirational centre of excellence. RHEINZINK’s small prePATINA blue-grey tile create a mesmeric feel which is maintained as you follow your route around the building. These interlocking shingles create interesting forms as the light within reflects on to the zinc walls beyond. The natural zinc surface compliments the historic setting but suits the modern architecture of the auditorium at the same time. At RHEINZINK our reputation for producing high quality products for the construction industry cannot be equalled, Zinc roofing, Zinc facades, Wall cladding and rainwater goods are produced at our production plant in Datteln Germany. Installed by craftsman and façade specialists we endeavour to achieve the highest standards and deliver value and quality that will stand the test of time. With our technical support team based in Frimley, we are able to offer the specifier the full support they need when designing with zinc.

We provide standard details for all our roofing and facade products in both CAD and PDF formats.
