The Ornithology Building which houses one of the largest ornithological collections in the World, has been shrouded in protective scaffolding for some years as its precast aggregate cladding panels have failed and become unsafe. Following a Pre-Contract Services Agreement (PCSA) to assess its structural integrity and determine the scope of works, d+b facades was awarded the contract for aluminium over-cladding, replacement windows, roofing and installation of photovoltaic panels.
