Bishopsgate Gardens is a new residential development in Preston City Centre featuring 13 units and an impressive range of communal facilities, including a rooftop garden, residents' lounges, co-working spaces, and independent retail outlets.
The building's striking façade combines two signature products of Proteus Facades: Proteus HR and Proteus SP spandrel panels. Proteus HR is an integrated modular rainscreen panel system that provides large-format optically flat panels with structural supports capable of spanning floor-to-floor, while Proteus SP spandrel panels were specified for their superior fire rating and excellent thermal performance.
The combination of these two systems resulted in a striking and functional façade that perfectly complements the building's contemporary design. The project was completed on schedule and within the allocated budget, with the cladding panels manufactured and installed by Proteus Facades and The Heaton Group, respectively.
The project's designers and developers expressed their satisfaction with the professionalism exhibited by both teams, and the facade's overall appearance earned appreciation from locals.
