Allied Glazing Systems appointed on third education project in series of Sheffield schools

21st Jul 2021 | Posted In Project updates

With a track record of delivering quality fenestration systems on educational buildings across the UK, Allied Glazing Systems has been awarded the contract to work with construction specialists Tilbury Douglas (formerly Interserve) on the Discovery Academy in Sheffield.

Being the third in a series of Sheffield schools where the team is collaborating with Tilbury Douglas, this new 80-place special needs school will provide education and support for children with autism spectrum disorder and social, emotional, and mental health (SEMH) needs. The school will be built on the site of Norfolk Park School, which has been demolished in preparation for the new facilities being delivered via the Department for Education Framework on behalf of Sheffield City Council.

HLM Architects has designed the building to suit the children’s specific needs such as separate dining areas for ‘quiet zones’ to ensure it is a safe and nurturing environment. Alongside these features, the design is based on sustainability principles to optimise daylight and ventilation throughout and to promote a passive approach.

The Allied Glazing Systems team will be designing and fitting Senior Architectural Systems SPW500 Doors, a high performance commercial door and framing solution capable of being manufactured in single, double and emergency door types. Also to meet the budgetary requirements on the project, Veka Windows have been specified which are a cost effective solution that offer flexibility and secure ventilation.
