It was important that the design of Holy Cross School in Swindon be contemporary with clean, architectural solid bold lines. Beard Construction installed HardiePlank® fibre cement cladding vertically to maximise visual appeal and scale. The modern clean edges give a focus on function over form, mixing eye-catching lines with bright bold colours in upright stripes enhancing the design creating a fun, bright and minimalist aesthetic that is fade resistant and durable compared to other materials.
Another important aspect of this project was the short timeline of just 43 weeks from drawing board to completion. Therefore an easy to install product was a must. The developers chose HardiePlank cladding as the boards are easy to cut and fit on site, especially using the Gecko Gauge tool to speed up installation time further.
