The Ceramic Building

The name says its all…. a building named after it’s ceramic cladding. What more could anyone ask for?

James & Taylor Ltd provided bespoke terracotta extrusions utilising a bespoke fusion glazed finish to the high profile project within the Elephant and Castle development. Just a stones throw from the shopping centre.

Working with the project team we devised a fixing solution that had to perform under onerous impact energies to satisfy the façade engineers performance specification.

A number of performance test rigs [PMU] were created and both soft body and hard body testing was carried out on all profile types.

We worked with the façade contractor, Skonto, and supplied the terracotta system to there factory for off-site unitising prior to the panels being installed on site.
