Ideal learning environment for Alford Community Campus

Ideal learning environment for Alford Community Campus

GLASSOLUTIONS has played a key role in creating an optimal learning environment for students at Alford Academy’s new Community Campus in Aberdeenshire.

The company manufactured and installed a curtain walling system for the development, choosing glazing products carefully to create a space with excellent temperature control, effective ventilation and plentiful natural light.

GLASSOLUTIONS selected Metal Technology’s System 17 High Rise curtain walling system to form the building’s envelope. With a continuous thermal isolator providing a thermal break throughout, paired with thermally broken casement windows from Metal Technology’s System 4-20 range, the low U-value of this configuration provides excellent thermal efficiency, maintaining a comfortable internal temperature for students and minimising the need for climate control. Large glass units were chosen for the project to maximise light transmittance and provide a bright interior.

The development was named a finalist for the Community Development Project of the Year award at the Scottish Property Awards 2016.
