Doors, Curtain Walling, Brise Soleil
The ‘L’ shaped building was designed by Hamiltons Architects and claims to drastically reduce energy consumption. EAG were appointed by Bowmer & Kirkland as the specialist glazing/cladding subcontractor to design, manufacture and install the curtain wall, doors, brise soleil and full height louvers from the range of Schüco International high performance aluminium systems.
The building consists of four stories of office accommodation arranged in a ‘U’ configuration around a central core, with a full-height entrance lobby visible on the main western elevation. This state of the art facility uses a displacement ventilation system, multiple external shading devices, high performance glazing, and elevational treatments which respond to their orientation. A large underground attenuation tank is also said to restrict surface water run-off.
EAG completed its contract for Bowmer & Kirkland in December 2008.
