Metal Technology supplied a comprehensive suite of architectural aluminium systems which complemented the creation of a futuristic look to the world class educational facility for Ayrshire College, Kilmarnock.

The design places two legs of teaching accommodation around a central atrium, creating a mature, open series of interconnected spaces.

Working with main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey and the project design team, Metal Technology supplied two variants of its System 17 Curtain Walling (capped and silicone pointed) allowing light filled spaces to become a real feature of this project.

System 10 commercial doors were used in the main thoroughfares with System 5-20D Hi+ doors and 4-20Hi+ casement windows from the THERM.AL range used extensively throughout the building.

These systems feature bespoke gaskets, cellular foams and polyamide thermal isolators, delivering impressively low U values.

Developed with an ethos of sustainability, the exceptional structural, thermal, acoustic and security performance of the Metal Technology systems used also contributed to the Colleges BREEAM Excellent rating, as well as the building’s Secured by Design status.

The £53million campus was built on the former Diageo site and will be used by 5,000 students each year.
