Project Overview //
State of the art fenestration instalment for Space Studio, a new school specialising in ‘Scientific and Mathematical Learning’ preparing students for careers in the space and aviation industries has just been completed in Feltham West London. The first of its kind, Space Studio is a new model for the teaching academic studies with more hands-on learning. Part of the Aspirations Campus at Rivers Academy West London, the school, which caters for 14-18 year olds, required the installation of 180 square metres of curtain walling which is designed to create a dramatic but practical façade allowing maximum light into the building. In addition the project consisted of an installment of PVC-u windows and 12 commercial aluminium doors.
The glass units, which deliver essential security, thermal efficiency in addition to noise reduction, which is critical to the school’s proximity to the flight path of Heathrow airport to counteract associated noise pollution. The bespoke aluminium framework has created a modern solution befitting of this innovative establishment.
