Brent knoll School (Lewisham)
Brent Knoll School in Lewisham has been rebuilt by Lakehouse Construction. TRC were employed to supply, design and install the windows, doors and curtain wall for this special needs school.
The windows were composite with natural finished timber on the inside and aluminium cladding on the outside for low maintenance. They were fully reversible so they could be cleaned from the inside. Child restrictors and laminated glass were on all windows.
The system that we used was Rayners Aluminium. There were 11 different areas of curtain wall.
The doors were also made from the Rayners system in Aluminium. They were DDA and Secure by Design compliant. We also had to make sure they operated with the opening force at the leading edge of the door being no more than 30N from 0° (the door in the closed position) to 30° (open). To achieve this they had to be power assisted.
This project was new build and TRC were acting as subcontractor (not principal contractor).
