Carbuncle Cup winner undergoes ’routine maintenance’ after damaged panels identified
The developer of PLP’s Carbuncle Cup-winning Nova Victoria has acted to quash social media speculation that pieces are falling off the building.
Photographs showing missing cladding cover plates and protective netting were circulated by Twitter users who suggested pieces might have fallen from the central London office scheme.
But developer Landsec issued a statement denying this and explaining it was carrying out routine maintenance to about 40 panels on the pair of buildings. It stressed this was a tiny proportion of the more than 50,000 cladding panels that cover the development.
