Yorkshire Brewery

MetecnoKasset was the perfect choice for the Yorkshire Brewery. With limited access for cranes and scaffolding, standard curtain wall and insulated panel systems were difficult to install. MetecnoKasset is able to be installed from inside the building, allowing the developers to use insulated panel products without the added costs and logistics.
