John Holland

Due for Completion in 2019

Masonry and timber materials combine to form projecting cruciform facades, with a grid-like shell.

Prism Facades have been engaged by John Holland to provide façade design, engineering and consultancy services throughout all phases of the construction of John Holland’s first development at 45 Waterloo Road.

The 11-storey commercial building includes over 35,000m2 of Grade A floor space.

The building’s facade includes a masonry-like projecting cruciform at every second level, which extends over the roof-level to form a grid-like shell.

The building includes a large internal atrium with skylights, which splits the building over each level, to provide natural daylight throughout the large floorplate.

Prism Facades have worked closely with John Holland’s development team and construction team to realise this striking façade scheme.

Facade Projection Study
Prism Facades undertook extensive three-dimensional modelling of the facade to interrogate the appearance and constructibility of the facade projections.

Installation Sequencing
Prism Facades investigated the installation sequencing and arrangement of facade projections to carefully align panel joints
