IG designed a bespoke system for accommodating the deep soffit above the office accommodation’s main entrance, combining both Brick Slip Soffit Panels and B.O.S.S. to attain the full 1005mm return.
Each B.O.S.S. unit fixed to the underside of pre-installed Welded Masonry Support (WMS) brackets to achieve the outer course of brick. The design incorporated two stainless steel channels to allow for necessary adjustments during installation.
Lightweight Brick Slip Soffit Panels were secured to the substructure, interlocking with the B.O.S.S. units to complete the soffit. The system, composed of three IG Masonry Support products, effectively achieved the staggered soffit detail demonstrating the impressive collaboration of IG’s components.
IG also supplied Brick Slip Lintels, providing exposed brick soffits above all recessed window openings. IG designed bespoke lintel solutions to accommodate both rowlock and stretcher bond patterns, as well as various soffit depths.
The development has breathed new life into the 1970’s building, transforming it into contemporary office accommodation.
