Press Release: GBA wins £2.4million contract

A Liversedge-based firm that specialises in the production of glass reinforced concrete (GRC) cladding products has won a major contract to design and create panels for the prestigious new UK headquarters of a worldwide bank.

GB Architectural Cladding Products Ltd is the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of GRC products and they have been awarded the contract for the design and delivering of cladding for use on the new HSBC head office which will be the base for its business and personal customer operations.

Worth £2.4million, GB Architectural will now design and manufacture GRC cladding for the new building with delivery on-site of the panels beginning next June until Easter 2017.

A spokesman for the firm said: “This is a highly prestigious contract award and we are absolutely delighted to have been selected to undertake this work by main contractor Galliford Try Building Ltd. “The design of the GRC panels and restraints is now underway.”

GRC cladding is becoming increasingly popular with building firms and architects since the manufactured panels are lighter, faster and easier to install than traditional concrete panels while having the same durable qualities which means there are significant construction cost savings to be made.

GB Architectural has a £7million turnover and employs 50 people and other major contract wins include providing GRC panels for the new Dakota Hotel in Greek Street, Leeds, while other recent prestigious work includes providing panels for the Trinity Leeds, the Southbank Tower in London and student accommodation blocks at the University of Liverpool.
