Westcoast Windows supplies windows for Foxwood & Highview SEN School
Westcoast Windows are pleased to have worked with BAM Construction and Guy Hollaway architects on the development of a new school building in Folkestone.
The project is a new Special Educational Needs (SEN) school that will amalgamate Foxwood and Highview Schools into one building.
As part of the project the architects have designed light tubes to allow light into the ground floor of the building from above. For this purpose Westcoast Windows supplied glazed composite window structures that span from floor to ceiling with obscure modesty panels to the lower half of the units. Due to the location of the ‘light tube’s the glass was specified for containment and to provide acoustic attenuation of 46dB (Rw) for sound-proofing purposes. The installation was a challenge in itself with the largest unit weighing in excess of 300kg, but was no problem for our installation team, which included a glazing robot to overcome the health and safety and distribution challenges of the weight.
This project is just part of our ongoing partnership with BAM Construction, having completed four successful school development projects with them, with two more in the pipeline.
Westcoast Windows are pleased to be associated with this project. Westcoast Windows design and manufacture Swedish high performance composite windows and doors. Visit: www.westcoastwindows.com
