The Rock, Bury is a mixed use retail and residential scheme comprising over 500,000 ft2 of retail accommodation within five separate buildings in Bury Town centre. The scheme included ‘anchor’ department stores for both Debenhams & Marks and Spencer, over sixty other retail units, a 10 screen cinema, a 24 lane bowling and entertainment centre, 8 restaurant units, over four hundred residential apartments and a 1,250 space multi storey car park.

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect, BDP, and the Design Team from Laing O Rourke to ensure the building maximized its potential as an architecturally prominent landmark. The most suitable system specification was identified that could meet the requirements set out by both Building Control, the client and NHBC. With the building height in excess of 18 meters it is classified by Building Control as a high rise building and therefore the chosen cladding system had to satisfy their stringent requirements for fire performance. As the Dryvit Outsulation and Outsulation Rail system with its expanded polystyrene (EPS) held the relevant BR 135 classification and LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) certification relevant for a steel frame and solid substrate it was well placed to meet the client and requirements for insurer approval for this mixed use development. This system also satisfied the thermal performance required for the project of .21W/m2K, Sandpebble Texture finish in a Moonlight Grey which incorporated the PMRB finish this was chosen due to its proven Mildew and Dirt pick up resistant properties.
