Amtico International

Amtico helped to transform two of JD Wetherpoon’s pub entrance areas. Each site wanted to incorporate their pub logo into the flooring design. The hardwearing attributes of Amtico flooring and the unique cutting and design capabilities influenced Harrison Ince Architects when specifying for the two sites.

In addition, Amtico’s custom design service allowed us to transform our initial idea into reality creating a greater sense of identity for each pub.”
Stunning Gothic style building rejuvenated with EB24 steel windows

Stunning Gothic style building rejuvenated with EB24 steel windows

Clement Windows Group

Virgo Fidelis Convent School was founded in 1848. The beautiful Gothic style, club head windows with feature tear drops are a main feature of the building. The original single glazed windows were made from cast iron, offering very poor thermal performance and minimal security. After 100 years the time had come to replace them. Project managers Synergy Construction & Property Consultants were seeking a window system that could not only replicate the original design but would also meet modern performance criteria. Clement’s EB24 steel window range met these requirements.

Dryvit – a brand of CPG UK Ltd

The Project Design team had the outline brief that the residential scheme had to achieve BREEAM Excellent Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.

Gratnells SortED tray inserts help fight surface contamination at Trumpington Park Primary

Gratnells Ltd

Trumpington Park is a new build primary school located to the south of Cambridge city centre. Like all schools in the first half of 2020, it has had to adapt to different ways of working and of welcoming pupils into the classroom. Like many schools, Trumpington Park stayed open throughout the lockdown to accommodate keyworker children and coming up to the end of the summer term, started to see other children return as the government encouraged wider attendance. However, social distancing measures, class bubbles, anxiety about being in class and worries about cross contamination are part of the new norm.

Instead of being printed, each piece of the design was individually cut using a precision sonic blade that oscillates at 20,000 cycles per second.

Assured fire safety depends on sticking with a quality specification

Assured fire safety depends on sticking with a quality specification

Promat UK

Dame Judith Hackitt’s assertion that the building industry routinely puts cost before quality will come as no surprise to architects and contractors who often see their specifications being challenged, and changed, just to save a few pounds. ‘Value engineering’ has become synonymous with an industry obsessed seeking to do everything at the lowest possible cost. Fire rated glass, framing materials and other components must be evaluated and scrutinised at the product specification stage. Once specified, passive fire protection products must stay specified, as the slightest change to the specification can compromise the expected level of fire resistance.
