Accoya cladding used for Podium Car Park renovation


United Kingdom

Miko Engineering worked closely with architects, structural engineers, contractors, and the client to manufacture and install two stylish entrance structures to the newly refurbished Podium Car Park in Bath. They decided to use Accoya cladding for the refurbishment as there is no need to sacrifice performance and stability for a beautiful aesthetic, not to mention it is a fully sustainable material.

Miko worked with Potter Church and Holmes Architects to develop two entrance structures for the renovation. With the help of architectural drawings, the contractor and client developed solutions for both structures.

The larger of the two structures was manufactured from column and beam, and all the steelwork was galvanised by Metaltreat Galvanizers and then powder coated by Elite Powder Coatings Ltd. Accoya timber cladding stained in an Iroko colour gives off a natural look and makes the entrance particularly eye-catching. The Accoya is supported by the steelwork that was installed.

The Accoya cladding acts as a great backdrop for the double automatic doors, supplied by Miko and installed by Alunag. The front face of the structure includes a canopy with 17.5 mm toughened and laminated glass, provided by Peterlee Glass.

The smaller structure, which runs alongside the main road into Bath, makes use of universal steel columns and beams once more. The complete roof was then clad in 17.5mm toughened and laminated glass, fixed via marine-grade stainless steel, with bespoke aluminium guttering that was powder coated to match. To the side and rear of the structure, there are glass infills supplied and installed by Alunag. Miko also fabricated some bespoke architectural infill panels to coincide with the architect’s initial design.
