Tata Steel products: Urban Seam® Façade in Merlin Grey
Tata Steel has supplied its leading steel standing seam wall cladding system, Urban Seam® Façade to a new award-winning development in Portsmouth. The Goldsmith Avenue project is among the first in the UK to benefit from the A1 fire rating of the system, as well as its modern aesthetic and long-term durability.
The Goldsmith Avenue development, which won Regeneration Project of the Year at the South Coast Property Awards 2019, provides a total of 70 high quality flats, with 56 for affordable rent and 14 for shared ownership.
The two, six-storey buildings, built by PMC Construction for VIVID, provide a much-needed mix of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom flats, with two designed specifically for wheelchair users. The exterior of the two buildings features a mix of red brick alongside Tata Steel’s Urban Seam® Façade in Merlin Grey, which was selected for its aesthetics, increased fire performance and longevity.
