LEEDS COLLEGE OF BUILDING

Kalwall delivers daylight for an aspirational, progressive and sustainable college building.

 

PURPOSE OF THE WORK:

As the only higher education construction college in the UK, when the Leeds College of Building commissioned a new campus, its faculty specified a design that would reflect its standing. College staff were concerned that too much glazing could create a distraction for students, but they did not want to sacrifice good-quality lighting for the workshop and training areas. 

 

WHAT WE DELIVERED:

Structura designed and installed a translucent wall using the Verti-Kal Kalwall format as it allowed daylight to flood into the workshop bays along the street frontage, without enabling students to be distracted by activity outside.

 

BENEFITS:

The new building is an instant landmark. It provides a modern learning environment for the College of Building, enabling it to expand the number of courses and qualifications it offers.

 We chose the Verti-Kal format as it allowed us to continue the verticality and rhythm that we had sought to generate through the repetitive workshop bays along the Black Bull Street frontage     David Bradshaw, Fuse Studios
