Translucent cladding by Rodeca is featuring on the former Olympic broadcasting centre.


Work has just begun on the installation of 1,400m2 of Rodeca’s translucent polycarbonate cladding panels on the former Olympic Park.



The 50mm PC 2550 Opal wall panels were specified by HawkinsBrown architects for existing and new circulation cores or staircases at the former international broadcast centre at the heart of the 1.2millionft2 Here East “campus” – the regeneration of London 2012’s state-of-the-art media facilities.


The largest building on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, big enough to house six Boeing 747s, its 647,410ft2 incorporates flexible workspace, retail units, large-scale studios and space to start and grow a business, supported by a leading-edge data centre.


Current and future tenants include BT Sport (79,600ft2), Loughborough University (72,200ft2), Hackney Community College (5,100ft2) and Infinity Data Centre (252,000ft2)


The Rodeca panels are being installed by specialist sub-contractor Lakesmere on the north elevation which will be occupied by Loughborough University.


Rodeca cladding will also feature on a standalone circulation core on the north-east elevation which links into an external steel gantry structure as well as two existing stair cores on the west elevation. These two stair cores will have a series of perforated aluminium rainscreen panels in front of them and when backlit the soft white colour of the Opal Rodeca panels will filter through and shine at night.
