New build Diocesan Education Centre in Wilton

Alu-Timber and their approved fabricator, Alliance Design Services, worked on a new build Diocesan Education Centre in Wilton, Wiltshire. This new centre will be the home for the Board of Education who will be supporting 200 church schools across the Diocese. As well as offering training and resources to those who work with children and the young in schools and parishes, the Centre will also be available to external agencies for hire.

Design freedom and solutions to modern environmental issues are a complex requirement. Alu-Timber EFT is a 60mm aluminium/timber curtain walling system which offers Capped, 2sided Structural Glazing with vertical or horizontal capping and 4sided Structural Glazing. Alu-Timber EFT provides internal thermally efficient Larch timber with time tested external aluminium for protection. To maximise spans and centres, a wide range of timber mullions and transoms are available and the inherent properties of timber provide two advantages: high strength and low U-values. All profiles are kept in stock which means challenging site deadlines can always be met. The extensive range of profiles creates options for large glazed framing areas which integrate seamlessly with Alu-Timber windows and doors. The complete Alu-Timber range includes casement, tilt & turn windows, open-in and open-out doors, framing and curtain walling.

All Alu-Timber approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing. Alliance Design Services liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
