High-performance curtain walling, windows and doors from leading aluminium systems manufacturer, Metal Technology, have helped shaped iQ-style student living at Elgin Place on Glasgow’s Bath Street.

The development, named from the church which previously occupied the site, offers 330 rooms in a variety of configurations over 14 floors with a large ground floor retail space. The building incorporates social spaces, including a rooftop bar, snugs, gym, gaming rooms and a creative studio.

Metal Technology System 17 was used in three variants for the curtain walling screens and rooflight: Silicone pointed, flat cap and capped. A special concealed vent was utilised to complement the ascetic design. Systems 4-35Hi+ casement and 5-35Hi+ tilt-and-turn windows and System 5-20D doors were also used throughout the building.

Used in isolation or in an integrated fashion, as in Elgin Place, Metal Technology systems provide reliable structural integrity, weather performance, thermal enhancement and security, together with creative and design freedom to deliver superb results.
