Hardie® Architectural Panel chosen for Go Modular project

Beam Contracting, the high-end construction firm, has chosen to utilise the Hardie® Architectural Panel, a product from James Hardie, the world leader in the manufacture of high-performance fibre cement and fibre gypsum building solutions, as part of its construction of ten modular flats in Poole in conjunction with Go Modular Technologies (UK) Ltd, the modular building manufacturer.

The decision to choose the Hardie® Architectural Panel was based on the fact that it is easy to install and delivers a cost effective, low maintenance solution with the assurance of an A2 fire rated performance.  Vivalda, the independent distributor of cladding panels, supplied the materials for the project, fabricating the panels in phases to coincide with the construction schedule.  Smooth sand, one of the available textures, was chosen to match the planning specification in three of the core panel colours (Arctic White, Anthracite Grey and Cobblestone), giving the project a modern and contemporary look, and reflecting the coastal location.

Steve Hawes, Project Director at Beam Contracting commented: “This was the first time that we’ve used the Hardie® Architectural Panel and we were really pleased with how easy it was to install – so much so that we have subsequently added the panel as a standard specification option for Beam Contracting.”

Lee Bucknall, UK Sales Manager at James Hardie, added: “Modular buildings are becoming an increasingly popular solution providing construction firms and clients with lower project costs, sustainability benefits and significantly reduced build times. Hardie® Architectural Panel is perfectly suited to supporting modular building methods providing a sustainable solution that is durable and easy to install.”
