A design inspired by an Abu Dhabi skyscraper, and brought to life in the prototype area of Maple’s Stockport factory, will soon be making a big impact on Salford’s skyline.

Maple are working with Morgan Sindall and architects AHR on a dramatic façade for a new multi-storey car park.

Made up of individual ‘kite-shaped’ aluminium panels, striking 3D hexagons will cloak the new building, which will be a far cry from the ugly concrete car parks of the past.

However, with imaginative concepts comes complex manufacture. So, Maple’s technical design team has been working closely with the architects since May 2016 to agree design and colour, and the intricacies of fixing and installation. Samples were created, reviewed and refined in our factory to avoid the costs and delays of making changes on site.

As with AHR’s original design in United Arab Emirates, the façade will provide solar and glare protection ― from all angles ― but still allow light to enter the building.

The project is due for completion in December 2018.
