Wrightstyle has been appointed to the Royal Academy of Arts, the UK’s oldest arts institution, for the supply and installation of advanced glazing systems.

The prestigious contract forms part of the RA’s £49.8 million redevelopment to link the two buildings it owns – Burlington House and a building in Burlington Gardens that it purchased in 2001.

When complete in 2018, in time to celebrate the RA’s 250th birthday, visitors will for the first time be able to walk from Piccadilly to Mayfair through expanded and improved artistic spaces.

“The RA is an iconic institution and a centre of teaching excellence, and the redevelopment of its historic buildings is therefore a project of enormous national and cultural significance,” said Lee Coates, Wrightstyle’s technical director.

“We have particular expertise in working on historically sensitive buildings, and we have comprehensive systems ranges to enhance any built environment,” he said.

The external glazing contract will comprise systems from both Wrightstyle and Secco Sistemi, for whom Wrightstyle was appointed a fabricator and supplier earlier this year.

The Italian company is a worldwide leader in the production of designer systems for doors, windows and facades – and which are specified internationally for the refurbishment of historic buildings.

Using their advanced glazing systems, Wrightstyle recently completed the iconic frontage to King’s Cross station in London, is currently working on an historic project on Tower Bridge, and expects to complete the RA contract in three phases between the end of this year and spring 2017.

Contractor for the project is John Sisk & Son and the architect is David Chipperfield.
