Swiss Facades were delighted to be involved in the new Student Accommodation, Western Road, Cork.  SIAC cladding and roofing contractors were responsible for installation of the Swisspearl fibre cement cladding panels and the supporting framing system from Systea.  Main contractors were BAM, Client GSA, Management consultants Cogent Associates and Architects Niall Rowan of DTA

The modern student complex was opened this month, September, and will is home to 190 students living in professionally-managed student accommodation. Situated overlooking the picturesque River Lee and near UCC the students will have easy access to downtown Cork and the University Campus.

The high quality finishes on the exterior walls featured Swisspearl fibre cement cladding.  These cladding panels were fabricated in the factory in Switzerland and delivered directly to site ready to install.  At Swiss facades we see it as an important service to deliver panels prefabricated, as this reduces installation time and improves overall operational efficiency onsite.

Swisspearl (Eternit) have been manufacturing panels since 1894 and have the longest history in the creation and development of producing fibre cement panels.
