Project Details
Architect: Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson Ltd
Location: London
Main contractor: EQUANS Regeneration
Sub contractor: Russell Roofing Ltd
Situated in the middle of the London Borough of Hackney, Will Wyatt Court is a 511-room residential building providing student accommodation.


Roofing & façade contractor Russell Roofing Ltd were contracted to carry out refurbishment works externally on the Will Wyatt Court building - recladding and subsequently transforming the building with BTS Façades and Fabrications' Vantage® IP Interlocking Plank rainscreen system in alternating metallic colours.


The rainscreen panel used has a secret fix fastening system, which means that the majority of the fasteners are hidden - but the remaining exposed fasteners have to colour match exactly the panel in order to blend in with the building.

Using our DrillFast low profile lacquered fasteners, we were able to colour match the fastener heads so Russell Roofing could install the fasteners knowing they'd match perfectly with the external panels.

Fast forward to 2023 and Russell Roofing were awarded 'best refurbishment project' in the 2023 UK Façade Awards for the Will Wyatt Court refurbishment and re-cladding of the building.
