Perforated sheets give unique visual character to facade

A unique facade linking 5 buildings together is part of a major building project carried out at Bergen University College. RMIG has supplied the 3 mm aluminium sheets used for this unusual facade. The varying perforation sizes provide a dynamic effect and create different patterns when seen up close or from a distance. The facade also changes appearance according to the light and weather conditions.
