Ayrshire College gets the Metal Technology lesson in excellence

complemented the creation of a futuristic look to the world class educational facility for Ayrshire College, Kilmarnock. The design places two legs of teaching accommodation around a central atrium, creating a mature, open series of intercon- nected spaces. Working with main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey and the project design team, Metal Technology supplied two variants of its System 17 Curtain Walling (capped and silicone pointed) allowing light filled spaces to become a real feature of this project. System 10 commercial doors were used


in the main thoroughfares with System 5-20D Hi+ doors and 4-20Hi+ casement windows from the [thermal] range used extensively throughout the building. These systems feature bespoke gaskets, cellular foams and polyamide thermal

etal Technology supplied a comprehensive suite of architec- tural aluminium systems which

isolators, delivering impressively low U values.

Developed with an ethos of sustainability,

the exceptional structural, thermal, acoustic and security performance of the Metal Technology systems used also contributed to the Colleges BREEAM Excellent rating,

School chooses Stelrad Planars

Nower Hill High School in Harrow recently underwent a major heating system upgrade that saw Stelrad radiators installed throughout the school buildings. The work saw the installation of the full range of Stelrad Planar flat fronted designer radiators – standard horizontal and

vertical Planars, and Heavy Duty Planars for parts of the school where the radiators would need to stand up to the knocks and bumps that a busy school might dish out. Full details of the Heavy Duty Planar and the wider Planar range can be found at Stelrad’s website. You can also see regular updates from Stelrad on Twitter and Facebook.

When Ellis Williams Architects (EWA) were appointed to undertake the design of Barrow Hall Primary School, they consulted with the school and local authorities to develop a design that avoided the pitfalls of existing building stock. With consideration to occupant comfort and energy efficiencies, EWA specified VIVIX®


Formica Group for the rainscreen cladding. The application of VIVIX panels to the exterior helped meet the brief for the build to incorporate minimal mechanical ventilation; while also establishing a distinctive aesthetic character for the school buildings. The former Barrow Hall Primary School occupied buildings which were considered by the Council to be in poor condition. For the new build it was imperative that consideration be given to good design that limits future maintenance costs. The durable properties of VIVIX panels offers a rainscreen cladding solution that is easy to clean and one that will maintain its aesthetic regardless of weather conditions or exposure to UV rays. Should the material need to be replaced, its lightweight nature and ease of application means less disruption to the running of the school.
