AWMS Skyline specified in prestigious educational project
The INCA 2019 New Build Award Winner features one of Alumasc Water Management Solution (AWMS) most innovative products. AWMS Skyline range helped to create the now nationally recognised £5 million Shipston on Stour project.
The construction of the Shipston High School began in November of 2017 and was completed last March (2019). Originally requiring a new teaching section, the educational institution acquired an entire new block. The successful new addition to the building was provided through extensive reviews of the building’s estate and cost modelling.
With its new contemporary architectural design, the school earnt itself the winning position as the 2019 New Build and Judges’ Choice award. Shipston High School was said to demonstrate impressive window detail, as well as a simple and effective overall minimalist design.
As the construction of the project focused on a simple and modern style, it comes as no surprise that AWMS Skyline products were specified for the school’s cladding, capping and trims.
We appreciate the Skyline range, because it enables us to create a solid and dependable structure, while respecting a certain aesthetic,” says Malcolm Smith, Managing Director at Weatherseal Facades. Smith continues, “Weather seal Facades is proud to have created such an artistically pleasing and functional school.”
The AWMS Skyline products suit both contemporary and traditional architecture. Furthermore, they are also designed to meet industry standards whilst exceeding expectations in durability, design and performance. Such criteria are crucial to respect in constructions built to hold a lot of people safely, such as schools and other public buildings.
“This project specifically required a modern design, with bright and state-of-the-art styled facades and modernised features. Specifying Skyline’s copings enabled this vision,” Malcom explains.
The Skyline Coping system by Alumasc Water Management Solutions provides an economical and easily installed capping to upstand parapets in conjunction with flat or pitched roofs.
Moreover, the standard range of colours for the Skyline Coping system are produced with a 30% gloss. Alumasc Water Management Solutions have their own state-of-the-art in-house powder coating plant.
“Alumasc offers the option of adding any additional BS or RAL colour, which was the type of design flexibility with needed to build this cutting edge and contemporary school,” said Malcom.
