Embassy building, London
Belgravia in London features some stunning examples of Georgian architecture. One town house, now a European embassy building, was in need of attention. A priority for refurbishment to any historic building is that additions and replacements must be sympathetic to the existing architecture. Equally, the objective behind the works was to increase interior comfort levels dramatically, as well as improving natural light.
Grange Park Primary School needed to replace an old and dangerous central atrium ridgelight. It was leaking and in very poor condition so the contractor turned to Whitesales for a durable answer to the problem. An Em-Glaze Hip End ridgelight was specified as a high-quality cost effective solution which would remain sympathetic with the design of the original roof light. Approval was necessary as Grange Park Primary School is a listed building. In addition, the entire project had to be completed during the set holiday period to minimise disruption to the school’s term time.
Cowes Enterprise College
Cowes Enterprise College is an impressive, £32 million new development with a multitude of attractive community facilities. With the key aim to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating, the College has been designed as a landmark building, replacing the preceding High School. Central to the building’s design is the flat roof, which is modular in construction and includes large areas of roof glazing to optimise natural daylight and ventilation. In addition there will be a living green roof and a biomass plant, providing low cost and energy efficient heating and hot water.
