New Workshop Building, Cambridge Regional College
REHAU GENEO® windows have been installed throughout a new workshop building at Cambridge Regional College which is expected to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
The windows, which are fabricated using REHAU’s Passivhaus certified six chamber GENEO® profile system, were specified by architects Pick Everard on the basis of their thermal efficiency and slim sight lines.
At Cambridge Regional College, the windows feature 32mm and 28mm double
glazed sealed units achieving a G-value of between 0.41 and 0.56.
Some of the windows are up to 2.5m high x 2.5m wide which would have required
bulky frames and substantial steel reinforcement in conventional PVC-U but, in GENEO®, the self reinforced frames are just 86mm.
Pick Everard specified the GENEO® windows in an anthracite grey for the project to match the cladding used on the exterior of the new £3m steel framed building.
The new construction workshop provides nearly 1,000m² of workshop space at the further education college for training school leavers, apprentices and adults in bricklaying. It also contains dedicated areas for plastering training and well equipped classrooms.
