Straddling the Thames along Greenwich Peninsula, the O2 Arena, has been London’s premiere entertainment venue for over a decade. AEG, the owners of the arena, decided to develop the site into a more popular destination by expanding the retail offerings under the O2’s iconic roof. Along with this redevelopment of 100 new shops and restaurants, the box office was expanded and a new gift shop was added to the main entrance. In order to expand the entrance, EFP designed, fabricated, and installed over 200m2 of 3mm Aluminium cladding to create a new façade for the entrance to the O2. The build-up of the cladding system includes Rockwool Cladding insulation, a fully sealed vapour barrier, Nvelope bracket system and EFP’s proprietary cladding panels.
