Nüevo Home Transforms London School With £40K Curtain Wall Installation

by | Jan 5, 2022 | On-Site

Bespoke architectural and structural glazing business Nüevo Home has carried out a £40K curtain wall installation at Kensington Primary Academy, transforming the building and improving its ventilation.

Catering for over 200 pupils, the Academy was previously fitted with a fixed façade without ventilation.

“Both the teachers and the pupils complained about a lack of natural ventilation, thanks to an outdated mechanical ventilation system that didn’t work very well, and so we were brought in to introduce 17 vents into the existing façade,” comments Nüevo Home director Amar Dhillon.

Combining precision-engineered aluminium, internal seen sections of just 52mm, uninterrupted ultra-efficient glazing, and robust locking technology, Nüevo Home’s architecturally superior EvoWall curtain walling is at the cutting edge of style, strength and performance, claims the company.

In addition, EvoWall comes with thermally broken aluminium frames that exceed energy efficiency requirements, while also offering superb air, wind and water resistance.

Amar continues: “There were several challenges to the project, the first of which was gaining access. We had to source a diesel scissor lift in order to carry out the work, which had to be exactly the same size as the school’s entrance gate.

“Overall, the project took us four weeks to complete – as the elevation work took place directly on the school’s playground, health and safety regulations meant we were only allowed to work over weekends.

“Despite the challenges, it was a privilege to be called upon by Kensington Primary Academy for this project, and we’re very pleased to have contributed to improving the building, as well as the health and safety of both its teachers and pupils.

“We very much look forward to working on similar projects in the future.”
