Prime.design sources Larcore A2, a structural honeycomb sandwich panel that offers enhanced strength, is more rigid, lighter, fire proof, non toxic and recyclable. With these products one can build significant lighter facades, more resistant to earthquakes, yet with finishes that assemble solid structure as for instance natural and man-made stone products.
After months of testing, PRIME.design was able to prove the durability of the product and is currently supplying materials to clad the new Justice Precinct in Christchurch.
