The Seacole Building is a new £41million expansion to Birmingham City Universities South Campus, to facilitate new laboratories & teaching spaces for a wide range of courses. CG Reynolds were employed to carry out the SFS frame-work, along with the internal partitions & ceilings.

The SFS frame-work employed new systems for CG Reynolds. The EOS SFS with swaged studs, pre-assembled window components & a new ordering system, whilst the Siniat Weather Defence, with it’s gpysum core meant a more time-efficient score & snap board. All of this not only offered time saving against a standardised SFS & CP board system, but with fewer cuts to the metal & no saw being required for the board minimised health & safety risks. CGR were additionally employed to install the EPDM seal, Extratherm insulation & brick ties. Subsequent to our high success carrying out these packages, we also installed stepped brick slips to the triple height curtain walling areas & brick slip soffits to the overhang.

The internals package consisted of British Gypsum Partitions, with Armstrong ceilings, both metal clip-in to the full rooms & planks in bulkheads with baffles to the remainder of the room. We also undertook a rigitone ceiling to the triple height area connecting the new build with the existing & built a frame-work for the timber cladding. This was installed both on walls & also to bulkheads. As part of the weather proofing measures we installed the new Glassroc X board to the atrium ahead of the rooflight installation. This solution was our first utilisation of the new British Gypsum product.
