The Abbey School
|Contractors:||Coombs (Canterbury) Ltd|
The Abbey School is an Academy situated on the A2 in Faversham, Kent. A thriving and improving school, it was in need of a makeover. As with many Kent secondary schools the buildings are generally a SEAC System over clad with Crittal curtain walling. Not only is this visually unappealing, it has minimal thermal performance, leading to higher energy costs. After a successful bid for funding from the EFA the team explored different options to re-clad the main school facades, taking into account daylight, ventilation, insulation and school branding. In conjunction with Prima Windows the team worked within the budget to provide a fresh yet functional appearance to the school.
