Lane Roofing Contractors have been honoured at The Façade Awards UK 2021, winning the award for ‘Best Use of a Composite Panel System’, in recognition of its project for Games Workshop carried out in partnership with Tata Steel Europe.
Lane Roofing were one of 12 champions crowned at the Façade Awards ceremony, held on November 19 2021 at the Midland Hotel in Manchester. The winners were picked from many hundreds of entries and a lengthy shortlist of projects by an independent panel of industry experts.
The project brief was to develop the new Games Workshop premises, creating a bespoke feel on the company’s new tool/robotics building, accompanying road structure, and main branded building which included an extra wide lift shaft to enable the contractors to access it with trollies and machinery when required.
Phase 1 of the project was for the smaller tool/robotics building, which took approximately three months to build. Building the road structure was the next element, and then the main branded building.
To create the unique exterior feel that the Games Workshop Building required, Lane Roofing made use of coloured cladding panels. The main products used for the project included Tata Steel’s composite sheet panels for cladding and roofing, structural steel framing including cold rolled steel, precast concrete, metal deck packs, a KONE MonoSpace 500 lift and lift shaft, and a range of fire protection equipment.
Games Workshop was eager to move into its new premises despite being based on a working site. Due to the nature of the company, a pristine environment was crucial, so ensuring that dust and debris was prevented from entering the building during works was an arduous task, but one that Lane Roofing successfully undertook.
The project was completed on time, with no major constraints, and Games Workshop were able to move into the new site on schedule.
Lane Roofing Contractors managing director, Gary Lane, commented: “We are proud to receive this award for the ‘Best Use of a Composite Panel System’ award, sponsored by Gordian Building at The Façade Awards UK.
“This is a fantastic achievement and I pay tribute to the entire team here at Lane Roofing Contractors who helped make this possible.”
