High performance glass and an excellent value engineering approach from GLASSOLUTIONS has played a major part in the delivery of the St John Bosco College and Wandsworth Residential Surrey Lane scheme, a sustainable college and Code level 4 and 5 housing development in the London Borough of Wandsworth.
The new premises of the school form part of a £50m mixed use development by Lendlease which also provides a range of 100 new homes on the site.
The four-storey school complex comprises steel frame construction with primarily brick and wooden clad finish and uses high performance glazing widely throughout to maximise natural light whilst offering excellent thermal performance and minimising solar gain. GLASSOLUTIONS supplied and installed glazing in the contract, valued at around £2.5m.
A stringent glazing specification saw standard glazing in the college buildings featuring argon gas filled 16mm double glazed units with black warm edge spacer between 6mm SGG SECURIT HST outer panes and 6.8mm SGG STADIP PLANITHERM ULTRA N inner panes. Solar control glazing units featured 6mm SGG SECURIT HST COOL-LITE SKN 174 II outer panes and 6.8mm SGG STADIP inner panes whilst rooflights combined 8mm SGG SECURIT HST PLANITHERM ULTRA N II and 8.8mm SGG STADIP glass.
Solar glazing and standard glazing also featured in the residential buildings with the Code level 5 town houses including triple glazed units with 6mm SGG SECURIT HST PLANITHERM ULTRA N II and 4mm SGG SECURIT HST separating two 16mm argon gas filled cavities.
