SHERA Strip is a fibre cement facade strip for use on all kinds of buildings as an external facade material. In this case study, SHERA Strip is used as an external wall facade along with SHERA Board.
Renovation of a Clinic - 350 m2 Covered Area
Timeframe to Completion: 60 days
Construction Company: Ikodomia, Cyprus
SHERA Partner: Ikoliving Products Ltd, Cyprus
The existing building was of the wrong architectural style required and had been deteriorating for some time - a renovation was needed. And, it was needed fast, economically and had to be of a contemporary architectural style.
Solution - Use Drywall Construction Materials and Methods
The first step was to take apart all the unnecessary elements of the wall/facade.
Exterior walls were created with SHERA Board (10mm), steel studs and insulation.
An architectural façade was created with steel and covered with 8mm SHERA Board
The solution was elastic as it is critical to consider material applications that tolerate movement.
Furthermore a breathable façade was required since the old building might have suffered from humidity concentrations.
Wooden Appearance Facade Using SHERA Strip
Wooden support battens were placed in 600mm c.c.
The support battens and the background area were painted with a black water repellent; then SHERA Strips were fixed with a nail gun onto the wooden battens.
Panel Appearance with SHERA Boards
Square cut boards in dimensions of 8*700 * 1200 mm were placed on top of the façade as a finished material.
PU was placed 10mm inside of board edges before installation for water proofing
