Metal Technology rises to the education challenge

Metal Technology supply curtain wall system for James Gillespie High School in Edinburgh.

Sympathetic design with a respect for the past but looked towards the future was essential for James Gillespie High School, which sits on the grounds of the Grade A listed Bruntsfield House.

To achieve that in the design and construction of the series of inspirational buildings, JM Architects specified a suite of systems from leading architectural aluminium manufacturer, Metal Technology.

The scheme incorporates System 17 curtain walling in both standard cap and T-shaped cap variants, used in conjunction with Thermal range Systems 25 Hi+ lift-and-slide sliding doors and 5-35 Hi+ tilt-and-turn windows to create an overall aesthetic.

All systems from Metal Technology have been developed and stringently tested to meet and exceed industry standards in terms of structural integrity and functionality, weather, thermal, safety and security performance.

The original school building, founded in 1803 by Edinburgh tobacco merchant James Gillespie, was also renovated and refurbished in keeping with its historic building status as part of the overall scheme.
