Colchester Stadium - A triumph of design in metal profile cladding

The recently completed Colchester Stadium was designed by Barr Technical Services and is, quite simply, a triumph of design which encapsulates all that is good in modern profile cladding for building envelopes.

Architectural Profiles Limited of Woodley, Berkshire, provided the profiles for the roofs and the walls, the roofs being constructed using AP31/1000 profile HPS scintilla coated on both sides for maximum longevity and durability. The walls are also HPS scintilla coated both sides on AP50HR (half round) sinusoidal profile - both finished in goosewing grey.

David Chalmers, Project Architect for Colchester Stadium, said "We were attracted by the aesthetics of APL's sinusoidal panel which we had used before at Southampton's stadium."

APL profiles are part of a wide range of cladding profiles, products and patented systems, designed and manufactured by Architectural Profiles which address all the key construction issues of today i.e. energy efficiency and thermal performance, construction time and building budget constraints, but, most of all, the aesthetics and the design options they generate.
