Parklex Facade

St. Ann’s Valley Centre, designed by Nottingham based architectects CPMG and built by Willmott Dixon with subcontractors Intex Facades, was the recipient of a commendation at the 2014 national Civic Trust Awards – the only building from the East Midlands to be recognised. The centre, which provides a hub of services including three GP practices, a library and a pharmacy, was praised for offering easy and convenient access to all members of the local community.

As a scheme, the centre is the first phase of a larger, more challenging regeneration project taking place in Nottingham’s inner city neighbourhoods. Parklex Façade used here in Copper, was used for its clean lines, whilst also softening the building. Parklex in this installation, is fixed with hidden fastenings and used also in the soffit area as well as the façade.
