Ian Burton, Hauraton‘s Project Engineer comments; “Light and dark grey granite paving blocks were used extensively to achieve a pleasing aesthetic appearance to the hard landscaping immediately surrounding the Academy buildings.

Howe Green creates “specials” for centre of collaboration and creativity

Howe Green has supplied products to the £150 million National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC) being built on the University of Warwick campus. The distinctive 33,000m2

building, with state of the art equipment Credit – James Billingham Tata Motors European Technical Centre

and world class facilities, will provide a centre for research, innovation and technology development in the UK automotive sector. Howe Green supplied around 400 floor access covers for use throughout the centre to provide safe and easy access to building services concealed under the raised flooring. The Howe Green bespoke 7500 Series Medium Duty Stainless Steel covers were specified by award-winning architects Cullinan Studio. The specification required that the covers were manufactured with a reduced depth, instead of the standard overall frame depth of 75mm. The reduction in depth enabled the access covers to be infilled with the same flooring used elsewhere in the raised floor system – calcium sulphate floor panels, with the stone pre-bonded. The floor access covers were installed by Lindner, a market leader in raised flooring systems. Calcium sulphate floor panels are ideal for sustainability as they are manufactured almost exclusively from recycled materials.

The new Caldicot School building in Monmouthshire offer the innovative and flexible learning facilities demanded by a contemporary secondary school. There are spacious classrooms, a multi-use hall, theatre-style learning areas and studio spaces for students to study informally. The building is designed to be energy efficient and natural light has been optimised throughout. Monmouth Comprehensive costing £47M is a brand-new school equipped with state of the art facilities. Rockfon acoustic products play a pivotal role in both schools by creating stimulating learning environments that are at the heart of the architect’s vision. BDP Lead Architect on Caldicot School and Monmouth Comprehensive Tim Humphries chose to work with Rockfon on both projects: “We’ve worked with Rockfon before on several projects and can specify their products with confidence. They’re aesthetically appropriate and there is an assurance of performance too, which is very important to us.” Rockfon Eclipse®

islands and Rockfon Contour® baffles let the air flow freely around the

school and control the level of reverberation to help improve speech intelligibility.
