The multi-phase refurbishment of a high school in Lancashire has seen Profile 22 supply state-of-the-art PVC-U curtain walling and window systems to replace existing timber frames, providing staff and pupils with a warmer environment in which to learn.
St Cecilia’s RC High School is located on a windy hill in Longridge, Preston, and as such is exposed to the elements, especially during autumn and winter. The old timber windows had been in place since the school was built in 1962, and they were in a state of disrepair having been battered by the weather over time, so a key component of the specification was weather-proofing.
For both phases, Profile 22’s products were chosen to meet this need head on. The Profile 22 SK200 Curtain Wall System was incorporated with the latest Profile 22 Optima casement windows with 1.4 u-values to minimise heat loss. In phase one of the refurbishment, completed during term time, replaced windows and a 175m2 of curtain walling on the three-storey elevation at the front of the school were replaced. The second phase saw the replacement of curtain walling on the rear, three-storey elevation of the school and standard windows on the two-side gables.
