The Bournemouth University Gateway Building stands at the entrance to Bournemouth opposite the main railway station and ahead of the young and vibrant student area. Its glittering gold, silver, and bronze façade is a symbol of hope and optimism in these difficult times.

Sandy Park Hotel

The external facade was broken down into distinct visual elements to accentuate the shape of the building. In addition to the rainscreen on the main hotel, TAC projects also designed and installed the internal and external cladding for the access bridge.

Quantock House

Our works included Rockpanel – 3215m² area to external main façade, a helping hand bracket and rail system, aluminium soffit planks to balconies and impressive Rockpanel Woods to the feature entrance – Carbon Oak, Ceramic Oak & Rhinestone Oak (as an alternative to natural wood).

      Our Services

Site Assembled Roof and Wall Systems

Site-assembled metal cladding is built up on-site with an inner white lining panel, fixed to purlins, rails or a cavity support bar system. Mineral fibre or glass wool insulation is then laid in the cavity.

Rainscreen Systems, Rendered Panels and Terracotta Tiling

Rainscreen cladding is the outer skin of cladding, which can be fitted to a new or existing building. This system is usually a form of double wall construction that uses an outer layer to keep out the rain.

Standing Seam Aluminium Roofing Systems

Standing Seam Aluminium Roofing Systems involve the ‘zipping-up’ of a raised seam over supporting clips, which allow for expansion and contraction. This non-penetrative system provides superb weathering performance.

Composite Roof and Wall Panels

Factory made composite panels are manufactured by permanently bonding together metal facings, with a foam injected or Rockwool core that completely fills the cavity, eliminating cold bridges and providing thermal insulation.
