EOS Facade stud & track system has been used to create an impressive curved facade for Middlesbrough College, Middlehaven. The EOS team have established expertise in educational project delivery, and worked closely with reputable partners to complete the build of the Middlesbrough College, a £68 million project.

The EOS Facade stud & track were supplied in required lengths to site and were applied to a primary framework of reinforced concrete and hot rolled steel. This formed the substructure for this stunning development, with a curved facade spanning two hundred metres over four storeys.

The EOS design team worked proactively with Laing O’Rourke to establish unique detailing and solve the challenges of creating a large curved hull for the building.

In addition to the Facade stud & track, double studs were provided pre-assembled for use around door and windows to form the jambs to speed up the process of

The design of the double studs also incorporated the fixing requirements of the external envelope and the complicated window positions in the elevation were all
designed to the Architect’s specifications. Each window was designed and detailed by the EOS design office to value engineer each window and not just provide a general solution.
