Product Based Building Solutions (PBBS) demonstrator project

Working as part of a collaboration with Laing O’Rourke and other partners, we played a key role assisting the creation of their Product Based Building Solutions (PBBS) demonstrator project through the provision of a choice of rainscreen finishes.

The PBBS is part of the company’s innovation hub at Explore Industrial Park which seeks to prove a new delivery concept to help companies build with greater certainty and speed at the same time as creating fewer carbon emissions.

The project required a high level of collaboration with the Laing O’Rourke team to ensure that the design, manufacturing and delivery logistics of our steel-framed hybrid façade panels was carried out flawlessly.

By doing so, we enabled the Laing O’Rourke team to install eight panels across two days, each of which took their small assembly team between 15 and 30 minutes to attach onto the rigg  to which a CWCT test was successfully carried out.

This was then installed onto the building and as well as providing an attractive finish to the demonstrator project, the installation of the rainscreen façade cladding made the building weathertight and allowed the construction and implementation programme to proceed.

This is a milestone for any project, and in this case was directly responsible for a major step forward in productivity on the project.

Heath Hindmarch, Chairman of PSP Group, said: “Working at the cutting edge of the sector is always exciting for the whole team at PSP Group.

“We pride ourselves on researching and developing products which provide better solutions for a better and greener built environment.

“Laing O’Rourke’s Product Based Building Solutions demonstrator project is a great example of what the future holds for the sector and what can be achieved through great partnerships.

“Our rainscreen façade systems are designed and manufactured to the highest standard, then delivered directly to the client’s door by our logistics team. Laing O’Rourke’s PBBS is the latest example of the quality PSP Group can deliver and we’re all very proud to have worked on this project.”
