Orkla ASA and Norsk Hydro ASA have agreed to combine the aluminium extrusion business of Sapa and Hydro’s Extruded Products, creating a world leading supplier of extruded aluminium solutions. The company will be a 50/50 joint venture owned by Orkla and Hydro, and called Sapa, with its headquarters in Oslo.
Curtain walling from architectural aluminium system specialists, Technal, has helped to create a highly visible new gateway and transport hub for the Berkshire town of Slough.
Designed by Bblur Architecture and built by McLaren Construction, Slough Bus Station is a bold new transport interchange that links the railway station and bus passengers to the town centre, replacing its infamous Brunel-designed bus station. It provides safe, enjoyable and efficient facilities and a new route into the main shopping areas, joining the north and south of the town which had long been separated by the A4 trunk road.
