Sleek design from Alutec for Mark Rutherford School

Sleek design from Alutec for Mark Rutherford School

A new specialist unit for students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has achieved a sleek and contemporary design, thanks to products from Alutec’s Evoke fascia and soffit system and Aligator® rainwater range.

Mark Ellerby, Director of Mark Ellerby Architects said: “The roof and gutter design for the new building was a key element in the scheme, as the three mono pitched roofs were designed as a standing seam system, but executed as a single ply membrane with seams. Therefore, we required an elegant and cost effective solution for the very visible roofline.

“Design decisions and specifications were taken jointly between ourselves and the school, so together we specified Alutec’s Evoke fascia and soffit system, as well as its Aligator Boxer gutter and Vandal Resistant downpipes. These products were ideal for the project as they presented a contemporary and minimalist appearance thanks to their smooth, uniformed profiles.”
