Student make-over

A former office block in Bristol has been transformed into a complex of luxury student apartments, featuring Jack Aluminium System’s JCW curtain walling system.

AA Aluminium Systems installed the curtain walling system in the £1.3 million make-over project to create the Study Inn, a modern and comprehensive all-inclusive living experience for university students.

The city centre site, which had energy conservation at the forefront of its design, used a combination of aluminium and PVCU.

Sam Keshwala, director at AA Aluminium Systems, won the commission to create the floor-to-ceiling aluminium framework, designed to blend in discretely and show off the huge expanse of glass.

Sam said: “This job was really interesting because we were asked to create a bespoke framework for one entire side of a building. At our Leicester base, the framework was cut to size, constructed and delivered to site. There, and only there, is the glass fitted.

“It’s absolutely vital that our frames are perfect. We rely so heavily on seeing the physical plans because we rarely visit a site. This job was very interesting and it’s one of many we’ve been involved with. Long may our relationship with Jack Aluminium continue.”
