can perform to Passivhaus standards. During the early stages of the project, one of Sapa’s facade specialists worked along- side Bonam and Berry’s designers to help devise a solution to how the very high loads from the centre of the transom could be transferred back to the mullions. Consequently, bespoke 45 degree brackets were manufactured, which were bolted back to the system members, all concealed within the spandrel area.


Whether fulfilling the aesthetic design aspirations for different developments or matching the most challenging environmen- tal and performance standards, aluminium systems are proving themselves capable of keeping up with the pace of change.
