PROJECT FOCUS: EASTWOOD SCHOOL
Location: Glasgow, United Kingdom
Wall/Façade products: BENCHMARK Evolution Axis & BENCHMARK Karrier
Finishes: Corten Steel and Aluminium cassettes
Eastwood High School in Glasgow was one of two exemplar secondary schools to be built as part of £1.25bn Scottish Futures Trust Schools for the Future programme. The award-winning pilot project, designed by Cooper Cromar architects and built by BAM construction, now serves as a blueprint for new schools across Scotland.
Incorporating form and function
This unique project aimed to deliver an innovative, cost effective and inspiring learning environment for pupils. To achieve the demanding thermal efficiency targets, and give the new building a suitably impressive appearance, Prater installed a range of BENCHMARK façade systems.
Meeting the design challenge
1,000m2 of BENCHMARK Evolution Axis premium, sleek unprofiled insulated panels in Kingspan Spectrum Onyx and Silver colours were specified with nearly 2,000m2 of BENCHMARK’s Karrier Engineered Façade System with 1.5mm Corten Steel, Athracite Grey and Grey Metallic Aluminium Interlocking Plank Cassettes.
