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

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.
Umbrella Street, SouthGate Bath

Umbrella Street, SouthGate Bath

Gripple Ltd

Gripple Catenary solutions were used to suspend a thousand umbrellas in the air above shoppers on the aptly named Umbrella Street in SouthGate Bath.

Queensferry High School, Edinburgh

Gripple Ltd

The £40m Queensferry High School project, due for completion in Spring 2020, is being delivered by Hub South East in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council.

By undergoing this process, exact quantities of products were delivered to site, with all boxes labelled by installation area. This process drastically reduced vehicle deliveries and waste, increased on-site storage, and benefitted health and safety through less time spent moving and cutting materials.
Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London

Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London

Guthrie Douglas

Our TESS™ 120 system was designed for retrofit and for light structures like the hotel’s atrium. With multiple fixing points, it minimises the load imposed on the structure, whilst being robust and durable. A single barrel mechanism keeps the fabric constantly under tension, and provides exceptionally smooth and quiet travel. We manufactured and supplied 16 systems of varying sizes, with the largest 4.125m wide. The end result is a discrete but highly effective shading solution which transforms the space by significantly reducing the heat gain and glare, making the space usable in all seasons and weather conditions.
Masdar Institute of Science & Technology, Abu Dhabi

Masdar Institute of Science & Technology, Abu Dhabi

Guthrie Douglas

The control of light and heat were central to the building's sustainability strategy. Tensioned shading systems were specified on the more challenging glazed structures due to their ability to be discrete and elegant whilst also strong enough to cope with extreme temperatures under the intense desert sun. Guthrie Douglas’ TESS™ 140 systems were installed in a very tight space on the roof glazing over the main sports hall. Being involved in the project from a very early stage meant we could integrate our systems into the complex surrounding structure to the point that they are invisible when retracted.

Accoya weatherboards selected for a private residence in New Zealand

Accoya

Designed by Trevor Wilson (Architecture 37 o) & constructed by Harbour City Builders, Accoya was chosen for the cladding of this Orewa beachfront home.

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.
