Bangor Library Zinc

Bangor Library Zinc

Postby RF » Thu May 22, 2008 8:17 am

This product is on Bangor Library (Metseam MS460 SYSTEM), the green glazing really picks up the quartz zinc, any other nice zinc jobs out there ? Looking for some ideas?

Oh sorry forgot there are two, Bangor in Northern Ireland, just beside Ward Park. This restoration project looks the bees knees.

The law society library extension in dublin has a similar looking cladding. It also shows what it looks like when it ages because the building is 7 or 8 years old.

Was that traditional method used on Dublin Law Society, the MS460 is a system which snap locks together, Will see if I can google it for a pic. I like the true lines on the seams on the Bangor job.

The law society library zinc has gone that strange yellow/rusty colour because it has been used in a sheltered area where it can't be washed clean of atmospheric pollution by the rain - I'd assume that a good cleaning would bring it back to the proper grey colour but in general it's a fairly poorly maintained building. Zinc remains grey provide it's used in places where it will weather naturally.

But It has only got that pattina colouration on the portion which is shaded from the sun.

God, this was a childhood/teenage haunt of mine (on holiday) and I remember the old Edwardian beaux-arts/Queen Anne (?) Carnegie Library very well. This better be good! And has it invaded the sacred precincts of the Ward Park? I must get over to see it.

A 'comprehensive' pic of old and new would be nice.
