Cembrit Cembonit cladding has provided a stylish finish for new student accommodation in Liverpool. The Arch houses students from John Moores University and combines both traditional and modern exteriors, with the new building situated behind an original 19th Century facade.

Formerly a hotel building, The Arch opened to students in September 2014, providing a total of 241 student rooms in a combination of shared flats and studio apartments. Facilities provided include en-suite bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi and satellite TV.

FGF Ltd, a leading distributor of high performance cladding, supplied Cembonit for the project. Approximately 500m² of Cembonit Flint cladding was installed for feature panels and window surrounds, that were used as part of the building’s redesign to create an attractive natural stone appearance.

“The final appearance of the building was very important on this project,” explains Peter Clarke of FGF Manchester.

“It is always a difficult task when you have to combine new materials with an old facade, and make it look natural. Having worked with Cembrit previously, we were confident that the Cembonit range would best suit the project. The end result is a modern, yet natural-looking finish.”
