Architects Mountford Pigott have specified VMZINC PLUS® in QUARTZ-ZINC® to create a highly unusual design for the new McDonalds in Eureka Park Ashford.

The system was chosen to provide a visually continuous warm roof across the curved span without unsightly ventilation details.

Mountford Pigott’s Trevor Scale commented: “We chose zinc as a natural material for its aesthetic qualities and to provide an innovative and sustainable solution which was ideally suited to the building design. The brief was to develop a factory engineered pod design solution for a production run of similar shops.” The result will enable landmark design buildings using the latest in engineering methods to be provided.
