The brief

As one of their approved contractors, Loughborough University came to us in March 2020 to ask if we could help remove and renew the exterior facade of the Sir Frank Gibb Building, which used to be a water tower. It is now home to the School for Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering.

The University needed a contractor to provide a turnkey service to remove the exterior glass, and design and replace it with a new system.

A Tenwall polycarbonate system was developed and installed in 6 metre sheets. Due to the design of the building and the exterior material chosen, we had to work closely with a structural engineer who helped us design a framework siderail to go around the building’s existing steel frame.

 

For us, this campus is such an inspiring place to work.

The Solution

This project was a complicated job with many facets, and we sought the expertise of a range of professionals. Loughborough University knew we were an experienced contractor with competent design skills and material knowledge, so they trusted us to research and develop multiple solutions, and bring them together to achieve a complete system.
