What The Client Wanted
During the construction of the Jaguar Land Rover building in Acton several of the external composite cladding panels received cosmetic damages.
These needed to be addressed in order for our customer to hand the building over to the end client. This particular building also had a custom colour which is specific to Jaguar Land Rover..
What We Did
Cladding Panel Repair – Our techniques of repairing cladding panels have been perfected over many years of practice and now we are working directly with the UK’s Leading manufacturers such as Kingspan, Alucobond, Ruukki, Hemsec, Valcon, Trimo, TATA, Eurobond, Euroclad and more. As a solution we filled all of the small dents, scratches, scuffs and fixing holes using a two part filler system and sanded them back to ensure that they were not visible and as per our quality control guidelines.
Once the final layer of filler had been sanded back using a very fine grade of sandpaper our operatives primed the areas and then sprayed over them using the desired top coat.
Colour Matching Services – We are fairly unique in regards to having in house paint mixing services and full time paint technicians, this enables us to not only turn around paint and supply last minute, but also allows us to match custom colours by eye and with this project and as mentioned Jaguar Land Rover have there own cladding colour.
This particular colour must be produced on coil regardless of which manufacturer is supplying the panels and we were able to produce the colour by matching it from a sample that was supplied to us. The colour was then sent to site with our team and applied to the panels.
The colour was blended in to match the existing elevation, the colour if slightly out can then be ‘tinted’ on site by our teams. We already have a huge database of matched cladding colours across the full range of all panels manufactures
