As the first new secondary school to be built in Cambridge for 40 years, the recently completed Trumpington Community College has been given a bright and modern design that features various aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling systems from Senior Architectural Systems.
Designed by Avanti Architects, the new school has been based on the Danish school models, which encourages large open plan and unstructured teaching areas and as such, boasts a light and spacious interior that has been accentuated by the extensive use of aluminium fenestration systems across all elevations.
Positioned around a central atrium that maximises the flow of natural light, the L shaped building features Senior’s thermally efficient SCW+ and SF52 curtain walling, SPW 300 aluminium tilt and turn windows and SPW501 aluminium commercial doors that are ideally suited for high traffic environments such as schools. In keeping with the school’s sustainable design criteria, Senior’s thermally efficient SF52 structural silicone glazed curtain walling system has been installed to the entrances to the school and sports centre building and along the elevation that houses the kitchen and dining areas.
All Senior’s products have been fabricated and installed by Soundcraft Doors & Windows for main contractor Morgan Sindall.
