SWEDISH COMPOSITE WINDOWS FOR LARGE SCALE DEVELOPMENT AND REFURBISHMENT OF EDUCATION CAMPUS AT HARRIS ACADEMY
Westcoast were pleased to partner with main contractors BAM Construction on the development at Harris Academy in Greenwich.
Designed by Nicholas Hare Architects, Harris Academy is located on an expansive and generous site, housed in a new main teaching and administrations building, whilst three existing pavilions were retained and refurbished.
The new main building forms a superblock with clear efficient circulation in a figure of eight around an external courtyard and triple height assembly hall space.
Clad with insulated steel panels over a buff-brick base, the robust efficient new building reduces the height of buildings on site whilst improving the educational possibilities of the school.
- 985m2 of windows and doors
- Double-glazed Classic Series
- Window sizes of 2900mm x 2100mm, weight of around 175kg
- High performance glass to prevent solar gain in the class rooms
- Automated louvres glazed into window units to control classroom environment
Westcoast composite windows are ideal for commercial projects of this specification – Harris Academy typically involved window sizes of 2900mm x 2100mm, with a weight of around 175kg.
The composite windows specification for this project required very high performance glass to prevent solar gain in the class rooms.
Automated louvres, of around 600mm x 2000mm, supplied by Tek (www.tek-ltd.com) were glazed into Westcoast units on site to help control room temperature.
