Exterior wall panels


I am remodelling a 10 story office building with really awful exterior skin (which has been painted about 20 times). The new owner wants to cover it up (re-skinning the building is out of the question)
I have done a search in the forums and not found anything... I am currently considering: SwissPearl, and CEP-Petrarch Panels. Metals are also out of the question...
Must be Lightweight, and thin. Any suggestions are appreciated in advance.

You're missing a genuine opprtunity: Paint the faaker again! Seriously, look what these faakers did:

I don't know the price point but " Equitone" Fiber Cement Panels might do the trick.

You can opt for Metal Glazing Infill Panels, they can benefit you if you are looking for cost effective and aesthetically pleasing option for your building.

we're looking for something really expensive and ugly as possible


Trespa (or any HPL) panels?

Well, it's not going to be as cheap, some structural additions will be necessary, but you could create a double-skin facade. This would be leaving the original wall, adding some structural steel supports that tie back to the building structure, and then just installing a CWS or other continuous panel on the outside of the building. It's better than a re-skin, and it creates an awesome thermal/waterproofing envelope. They do it in Europe a bit.

I found a great website for the isolating panels that you can contact they have a quality and my trust in any kind of projects that require isolation, investors were really satisfied with the price and the job was well done :)

I would recommend vinyl cladding. Being a plastic cladding it's light weighted too (as per your requirement).
