Architects Becoming ‘Facinated’ By Alco's Faceted Walls
Posted on 30th June 2011
Alco Wall Systems have recently been asked to design and install several faceted ‘curved’ walls on sites in the North of England. This was, until recently, an unusual occurrence, which requires very high standards of both manufacturing and site installation.
One such job has recently been completed at Whitebeck Court, in Blackley, Manchester, for Wates Living Space, and designed by Leeds architects West and Machell.
Two 57dBRw NW100 walls were built forming a corridor on a curve to the tightest radius ever undertaken by Alco Wall Systems; each panel having a 12 degree angle between them. The layout also included three pass door panels, and a unique junction to a connecting crosswall. The result is a great credit to the quality of our product, and the expertise of our Manufacturing and Contracting personnel.
Other faceted walls awaiting installation are at Yarm School, Sirius and Ganton Academy in Hull, and Ashton Campus.
