LEADING Welsh fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium is supporting the construction of two innovative school projects.
Net Zero Carbon New Build School in Rhydyfelin
The first of the two builds is a Welsh medium primary school in Rhydyfelin, in the greater Pontypridd area.
The new school, which is aiming to be net zero carbon, will house first-class education facilities in a 21st century building. Other features include a new playing field, multi-use games area, on-site bus drop-off area and staff car park. An artists impression of the new building is shown above.
Dudley’s Aluminium will be working with ISG Construction Ltd on the build and will install sustainable Metal Technology System curtain walling, windows and doors, in addition to remote window operators and automatic doors.
Nishkam Multi-Faith School in North Brent, London
Teaming up with BAM Construction, Dudley’s will also be using Metal Technology System products throughout its second build, a Nishkam multi-faith school in North Brent, London.
The fabricator will install Metal Technology System curtain walling, windows and doors at the all-through school which will provide places for 1400 primary, secondary and sixth form students.
The innovative school will include a central faith area with an EFTE dome, a main assembly hall, two dining halls, a four-court sports hall, a multi-use games area and grass pitches.
Adding to its sustainable credentials, the school will feature an extensive solar array on the roof, electric charging points in the car park and the football field will be used for storm attenuation.
Colin Shorney, Managing Director at Dudley’s Aluminium, said:
