composite cladding / aluminum / glass / sheet
CHINA MOBILE GLOBAL NETWORK CENTRE by Leigh & Orange (L&O)
composite, aluminum, glass
This Data Centre is located at the Tseung Kwan O industrial estate, east of Hong Kong, and it is the first Data Centre outside of China for the leading telecommunications company. The cube-shaped building is clad with a multi-colored aluminum composite sheet cladding with individual windows and ribbon windows. Slanted joints of the sheets and also partly of the glass units lead to a high variety of different sheet and glass types which required a high degree of fabrication and installation precision. In addition, to reduce the energy bill of the building, it is also clad with double insulated glazing with low-e coating and colored glass panes on the inside. On the 11,400 sqm (122,700 sq ft) total façade area the proportion of sheet cladding outweighs the glass areas.
