The University of Bedfordshire’s Luton Campus has been completely re-dressed in a stunning mix of Rockpanel External facades, providing beautiful, fire-safe, future proof accommodation for thousands of students.

Installation specialist Sorba UK Limited were instructed by main contractor Kier Construction to investigate the existing external envelope of the University of Bedfordshire Luton Campus, to see if the materials used were up to current building regulations, particularly in respect to fire.

Sorba UK Business Manager, Mel Noon said of the scheme, Fundamental issues were found with the original materials used and we were instructed to remove all of the existing cladding elements back to the backing wall and re-install new compliant materials. Rockpanel was used primarily because of its A2 classification and compliance to the new building requirements for high rise dwellings.
