Case Study
The Academy’s design by Royal Haskoning reflects on the latest trends in education.

The original specification featured an ETFE roof, but building physics modelling identified that this alone would not provide sufficient protection, to meet the exacting thermal comfort requirements of the large event space.

The challenge was to integrate shading systems into the exceptionally light support structure of the roof. We designed a bespoke ‘clamp’ bracket arrangement which was installed directly onto the steel support cables.

The result is a shading system which provides effective solar protection without compromising the design ethos.
