Mandeville School

Design Brief

Aliport Commercial were first contacted in February 2013 about this project. Mandeville were having a new extension constructed and were looking for a striking glazed feature to the front of the building in line with the architects requirements. The architects plans specified a large technically challenging bespoke glass canopy

Site Conditions

Aliport Commercial undertook three site visits to fully understand the project, measure up and produce the designs for the new canopy and the glazing required. The site had a number of difficulties which made the Canopy Installation technically challenging, the work area was very tight and due to the height and weight of the glass a crane was required to lift the glass into place

Aliport Solution

Aliport Commercial commenced works in February 2014 and over two stints on site totalling a 6 day duration installed the canopy and glazing. The Aliport team demonstrated excellent planning and organisation to get the Glazing in place safely, with the minimum of disruption and working within the small construction site. The finished canopy looks modern and stylish and in line with both the architects and the Schools requirements
