The new £53m Hartlepool College of Further Education features extensive use of architectural aluminium façade systems from Technal.

Designed by Bond Bryan Architects and built by Miller Construction, the new state-of-the-art campus brings world class education and training facilities together in an iconic building and is set to make a significant impact on the town of Hartlepool, on both its economy and the local community.

The 19,000sqm scheme consists of two blocks linked by a continuous curved atrium space.  The central core accommodates shared social facilities and the Learning Core, with classrooms, offices, conferencing suite, restaurant, fitness centre and salons in the north wing and large-scale skills academy spaces in the east wing.

Technal’s MX Visible Grid faceted curtain walling provides floor-to-ceiling glazing for the two-storey main entrance elevation and to the rear façade which spans four storeys and encloses the food court and Learning Core.  The MX system was also used for the single storey curtain walling to the workshop areas, a full height glazed entrance lobby and three stair towers.
