New reference material – The National Graphene Institute, Manchester, UK

The National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester at Booth Street East, Manchester M13 9PL, UK was completed in 2015. The 7,650m² building is a state of the art scientific and research facility and its purpose is to commercialise the use of graphene.

From our DesignScape™ collection of metal finishes, the façades to the 5-storey building are clad in Rimex’s ColourTex® black mirror coloured stainless steel alongside glass to stunning effect as specified by Jestico + Whiles Architects.

The black ColourTex® coloured material is 2mm thick and is 316 grade stainless steel that has been perforated by Architectural Steel Ltd to detail formulae relevant to the graphene product. The liveliness of the product makes it a unique and dynamic material for stainless steel facades.
