Cladding is generally defined as panels that are individually supported and restrained allowing construction to take place with open joints. Differential movement is accommodated in each joint, which negates the need for larger compression and expansion joints. Open jointed systems provide a ventilated cavity and require waterproof rainscreen insulation systems. Ventilated cavities assist in achieving the demands of the new European energy saving requirements.

The Valletta City Gate required the largest stone elements on the project. These elements had to be fabricated to the extreme tolerances required for the project to ensure that all the complex 3D monolithic elements, mainly L-pieces forming the corners, are lined up.
