The recently completed Trumpington Community College is the first new secondary school to be built in Cambridge for 40 years.
Designed by Avanti Architects, the new school is based on the Danish school model, which encourages large open plan and unstructured teaching areas. The bright and modern design boasts a light and spacious interior that has been accentuated by the extensive use of aluminium fenestration systems across all elevations.
Positioned around a central atrium that maximises the flow of natural light, the L shaped building features Senior’s thermally efficient SCW+ and SF52 curtain walling, SPW 300 aluminium tilt and turn windows, together with SPW501 aluminium commercial doors that are ideally suited for high traffic environments such as schools.
In keeping with the school’s sustainable design criteria, Senior’s thermally efficient SF52 structural silicone glazed curtain walling system was installed to the entrances to the school and sports centre building and along the elevation that houses the kitchen and dining areas.
