The scaffolding has now been taken down at the Kingerlee construction site to reveal the stone façade of the new library building at St Anne’s College Oxford.
The façade has been constructed by the architectural precast concrete company Decomo. The precast panels provide the load bearing elements of the building and are generally built up of 50mm outer stone, 75mm backing concrete, 100mm insulation and 250mm inner leaf concrete.
Fixings were detailed to allow the connection of incoming steelwork and precast floor planks. The panels were made in Belgium.
