Alu-Timber completed a new build school in Swiss Cottage, London NW1. The UCL Academy is a mixed secondary school for pupils ages 11-18 years. The project consisted of the demolition of three existing schools on the site, followed by the development of a new UCL Academy building and replacement of the two Swiss Cottage Specialist SEN School buildings into one building. The new building has achieved a BREEAM rating of Excellent.
The complete Alu-Timber range includes casement, tilt & turn windows, open-in and open-out doors, framing and curtain walling. Design freedom and solutions to modern environmental issues are a complex requirement. Alu-Timber EFT is a 60mm aluminium/timber curtain walling system which offers Capped, 2sided Structural Glazing with vertical or horizontal capping and 4sided Structural Glazing.
