Powder coating assists contemporary regeneration

Powdertech Corby has recently completed work on phase 1 of the exciting regeneration of Regent's Park Estate, Camden which provides 116 high-quality new homes for residents directly affected by HS2 construction in the Euston area. The estate still retains a variety of features and squares from John Nash's original 1810 scheme. The new plans have introduced high-quality contemporary housing with more accessible open spaces and new public amenities.

A key feature of the regeneration is the creative design of high-quality cladding panels. Part-pressed and fully perforated pre-galvanized steel panels add an up-dated look to the building known as ‘Cape of Good Hope’. Powdertech provided samples to help the designers select a pearlescent powder, RAL1035, to coat 600 m2 of panels, the shade and finish complementing the brickwork.

Two further buildings, ‘Newlands’ and ‘Ryedale’, use 400m2 of slightly expanded mild steel panels to give an undulating cladding outer face and smooth inner face and are used externally and internally. Powdertech degreased, shot blasted, and primed the external panels in a zinc-rich primer before applying a polyester powder RAL1035 pearlescent top coat. The zinc-rich primer provides enhanced protection in areas where the environment is regarded as more corrosive than usual. The internal panels were coated in polyester powder RAL8000.

Our flexible approach and ability to offer a mixture of finishing systems for different substrates is a great showcase for our one-stop-shop approach to multi-disciplined projects. The tight programme required by Camden Council, in response to the HS2 proposals, was easily met by our factory-based powder coating facility.
