New Street - New Start

Network Rail on 20 September has opened Birmingham New Street station after a five-year, £750m transformation. Boasting an iconic new atrium with approximately 8000 square meter NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z Film over a huge passenger concourse - five times the size of London Euston's - the station, which opens its doors to the public on Sunday 20 September 2015, has been rebuilt while trains continued to run as normal for the 170,000 passengers a day who use it.

The outstanding light transparancy of NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z film and its outstanding mechanical properties were a perfect match to the architects visions. Once more a demonstration that NOWOFLON ETFE film, as a light weight cushion membrane or as a one layer construction, is the building material for the future.

With brighter, de-cluttered platforms, improved entrances, a range of new facilities and an abundance of natural light over the new concourse, Birmingham New Street, one of Britain's busiest inter-change stations, is also a retail destination in its own right. The new station features 43 shops at concourse level and above it sits the new Grand Central shopping complex, including one of the UK's largest John Lewis department stores. The 450,000 sq ft shopping destination, which will has opened its doors today, will create more than 1,000 jobs and is expected to attract more than 50 million visitors a year.

What a view!

What a view! Highly transparent NOWOFLON ET film covers roof top garden in London.

The latest attraction in London is the roof garden of  6 Bevis Marks. The architects from Fletcher Priest have designed  a fantastic solution to cover the roof garden area. It’s not easy to impress when there are neighbouring buildings such as  The Gherkin and Tower 42, among others. However, the Fletcher Priest architects created an impressive and functional highlight in London's West End, topping it with 4000 square meters of  NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z film.  

6 Bevis Marks is an example of the ability of architecture to align the complexities of urban development with people’s desire for green spaces in which to relax.

NOWOFLON ET film is the perfect building material for such future-oriented construction. This film is especially suitable  for protecting flowers and other plants, as its high levels of UV light transmission are essential for lush, healthy plants.
