A Marvel of Energy-Efficient Architecture

Union Square stands proudly as the latest addition to Hamilton's evolving skyline, showcasing not only a captivating façade but also a commitment to unparalleled performance in energy efficiency. Meticulously crafted by the esteemed architectural team at Chow:Hill and engineered by the team at Oculus, this architectural marvel not only captivates with its stunning façade but also leads the way in energy efficiency.

Concealed beneath the sleek Indurcore G2 façade from Paneltec lies a crucial layer — 75mm of external insulation made from rock mineral wool. This insulation blanket envelops the entire structure, playing a pivotal role in curbing energy consumption for heating and cooling. The result is a consistently comfortable internal temperature, ensuring a harmonious environment for the building's occupants.

At the heart of Union Square's energy efficiency is Technoform's cutting-edge thermal break innovation. 75mm thermal isolator brackets, meticulously installed by the skilled team at Korok, serve as a linchpin in supporting the façade's load. These innovative brackets, constructed from low-conductive glass fibre-reinforced polyamide, create a secure connection back to the building structure while minimising thermal bridging.

Unlike traditional construction methods, Technoform's thermal isolator clips are constructed from low-conductive glass fibre-reinforced polyamide. This not only ensures a robust connection but also significantly reduces heat losses that would typically occur with conventional aluminium bracket systems. The result is a building that not only meets aesthetic standards but surpasses expectations in energy efficiency, making Union Square a shining example of sustainable and beautiful architecture.

Choose Technoform for a fusion of aesthetics and sustainability — where every detail, down to the thermal isolator clips, contributes to a greener and more efficient future.
