Promoting a partnership for protection
Long-time Northstar client Sto, who specialise in external insulation, cladding and render systems, have been involved in one of the North’s most high profile construction projects – Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2 expansion– providing façade systems alongside Irish company MICAM.
Both Sto and MICAM are market-leading innovators and offer fully-tested blast-resistant systems – and on the Terminal 2 project developed a complementary, close working relationship. Seeing that this could benefit both parties by offering architects a ‘one-stop solution’ for such potentially vulnerable infrastructure projects, they asked Northstar to create a jointbrochure promoting the partnership.
Focusing on safety first
A key part of the task was to raise awareness of the need to protect people in public spaces such as airports, arenas, railway stations and the like, and outlining how blast-resistant systems can mitigate the injuries and damage that could result from a terrorist attack.
The brochure went on to outline both companies’ credentials in this area, together with technical details that demonstrated the relevant systems’ performance.
The brochure used a mix of photography and infographics to get important details across, including an extensive study of what was required for the Terminal 2 project.
