Hybrid and aluminium solutions for school project
Robert May’s School is a secondary school in Hook, Hampshire that was first established back in the 1600s. The school’s facilities have been refurbished and extended to meet the demands of its growing intake and new academy status. Soundcraft was appointed by key client Morgan Sindall to complete the glazing package for a new two-storey building which has provided new valuable new learning spaces, including five new classrooms and a library.
Hampshire County Council
Soundcraft was responsible for the design, manufacture and installation of the new school building’s curtain walling, doors and windows.
Fenestration solutions from the Hybrid range were chosen to provide an aesthetically pleasing solution that complemented the school’s heritage and yet would meet the demands of a modern building. Combining PEFC certified timber internally with aluminium externally, Hybrid curtain walling was installed to create a welcoming entrance to the new building. Hybrid Frameless Casement windows were then incorporated into the curtain walling, giving a flush and seamless finish and providing natural ventilation. To provide safe and secure access, robust aluminium SD commercial doors were also installed.
Challenges on Site
It was vital that all works were completed in time for the new school term and that disruption to staff and students was kept to a minimum.
Adding to Soundcraft’s portfolio of work in the education sector, the successful completion of Robert May’s School in Hampshire has also further strengthened relationships with key client Morgan Sindall.
