Novum was contracted to design, manufacture and install a curved 2 layer ETFE air filled pillow and exposed steel façade. Due to the barrel-shaped double curved structure, all flashings had to be bespoke in their construction and developed and fabricated using site measurements. Rope access techniques were implemented in the installation of the façade due to its curved shape as a traditional plant could not be used.
