The White Rose Shopping Centre’s prestigious £13.7m extension has used SFS’ powder-coated fasteners to help deliver a striking finish
The high-performance powder-coated fasteners from SFS intec have played a key role in enabling leading roofing and cladding contractor Roofdec to create a striking new building envelope for an extension to the White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds.
The prestigious £13.7m project, completed by Morgan Sindall for client Land Securities, expands the popular shopping centre with an additional 65,000 sq ft. This space incorporates an 11-screen Cineworld cinema with IMAX technology, numerous restaurants and an extension of both the existing Primark and Debenhams stores.
Meeting the colour consistency and long-term performance brief across the various elements of the contemporary façade, Roofdec turned to SFS intec for 40 variations of fasteners, many of which were powder-coated in-house to match the different forms and colours of the rainscreen exterior. This included ensuring that fastener heads complemented the building’s unique curved facias, which were formed of purpose-made anodised panels in various colours.
Jon Barnes Senior, Managing Director of Roofdec, says: “For all of our prestigious jobs, we choose SFS’ fasteners for their excellent quality, ease of installation and value for money. SFS provide excellent technical support throughout the design and construction phases of a project and with their production facilities being located in Leeds with in-house powder-coating, the logistics to get the right coloured product on-site were a breeze.
“With their unbeatable warranty, we’re confident that we will have no teething problems on site and the sustainability of the building is secure for a longer warranty period. Once the project is finished, we can move on to our next project with total confidence in our work.”
SFS powder-coats fasteners, available to meet any RAL colour and in bespoke finishes, at its UK HQ and production plant in Leeds. This ensures it can provide complete consistency in fastener design, manufacture and colour-matching for total peace of mind – all within industry-leading lead times.
