Severn Trent headquarters, Coventry

Client: Severn Trent headquarters, Coventry
Architect: Webb Gray
Type of works: supply of Reynaers CS68 windows, Vision 50 doors and Reynaers CW50 curtain walling system

Reynaers Aluminium has played a significant part in the creation of one of the most sustainable office buildings in Europe by providing curtain walling systems, windows and doors for the new Severn Trent headquarters, in Coventry.

The seven-storey, 38 metre-high headquarters building, built by BAM Construction, with the help of £6.5 million from Advantage West Midlands and support from Coventry City Council, has one of the lowest carbon footprints for any UK office building.

Reynaers CS68 windows and Vision 50 doors were installed throughout the new development by Solaglas Contracting Midlands. Incorporating Reynaers three chamber system for improved thermal insulation, the windows and doors help to ensure heat retention and make the building more thermally efficient.

Webb Gray Architects specified Reynaers CW50 curtain walling system to facilitate maximum creative freedom in their original design proposals. This in turn produced eye catching and appealing aesthetics and also provided maximum natural light exposure into the building.

“This is one of the most exciting and innovative projects we’ve been involved in,” explains Paul Duffy, Reynaers Head of UK Sales, “by using our high insulation products such as CS68, they have managed to develop and build one of the most sustainable office buildings in the whole of Europe.

“This will hopefully demonstrate to other developers the type of environmental gains and cost savings that can be achieved by specifying Reynaers products from the outset.

“Reynaers Aluminium systems are specifically designed to blend high performance characteristics with eye-catching aesthetics, whilst at the same time keeping within budget.”
