To renovate an existing 1960’s single-glazed curtain wall using a Kalwall translucent façade. The school has already had Kalwall in its Sixth Form block at the same site for several years.
A new Kalwall façade which now bathes the classrooms in perfectly diffuse natural daylight providing the students with an environment that is comfortable to learn in throughout the year.
The new wall has delivered an increase in thermal performance to a u value of 0.56W/m2K. Each classroom now has natural daylight with no solar heat gain and without the need for shading blinds as there is no glare no hot spots.
New façade for Featherstone High School
