London, W2



EAG’s contract with Galliford Try forms part of the £25million project to build this new school. In addition to the glazed terracotta cladding, EAG have installed a mixture of glazing systems, including high performance structurally bonded curtain walling with integral doors, automatic bi-parting entrance doors and a glass balustrade on the north-west elevation. The Architect AHMM is well known in the industry for incorporating colour into its designs (particularly green and yellow) and Westminster Academy is no exception. The glazed green and yellow layered terracotta tiles that cover the exterior of the building were influenced by the natural lines formed in geological strata. The finish is reminiscent of the old London underground stations that feature highly coloured tiling and the façade of the Westminster Academy will prove just as durable, as the cladding is incredibly resilient.
