Neolith® is fast becoming an eco-friendly surfacing material of choice for commercial facade systems across Europe and North America.
Global facade design has evolved considerably over the last decade. The EU Net Zero 2050 target means sustainability is now just as important to consider as durability, longevity, and appearance.
Architects are constantly searching for building products and solutions which mitigate the negative climatic effects of excessive CO2 production. Specifying eco-friendly, low-impact cladding is one way in which this can be achieved.
Recently, 1700 square meters of Strata Argentum Riverwashed 6mm was specified across the exterior of Daalsesingel, a managed office space, in Utrecht, Netherlands. Bakers Architecten were immediately drawn to Neolith® surfaces, which are manufactured in a carbon-neutral environment from 100 percent natural minerals.
While sourcing sustainable surfaces was important, the architects also needed a robust and durable material, to withstand the daily impact of city life and meteorological conditions, and offer the client long-term value. Not only possessing numerous sustainable credentials, including LEED and GreenGuard certification, Bakers Architecten, were also impressed by Neolith’s ability to balance form and function, a high-spec material with ample style.
Neolith’s inherent properties make it highly resistant to wear and tear and its low porosity also means it’s easy to maintain and clean; this significantly reduces the need for refurbishment at a later date.
