Sustainable Swansea school

AB Glass has been awarded a contract by Willmott Dixon to carry out works at a new school development in north Devon.

Route 39 Academy is a £multi-million two-storey development that will provide 700 places for students between 11 and 18 years of age. Willmott Dixon, which claims to be the country’s only carbon neutral construction company, appointed AB Glass to provide design and installation services at the new Route 39 Academy development.

AB Glass began work on the project during December 2017. The aluminium system being installed by the company for the project includes Kawneer AA100 curtain walling and AA720 doors. The contract value is worth £90,000 to AB Glass.

The new sustainably designed school is planned to open in September 2018.

Nigel Harvey, operations director at AB Glass, said: “We are thrilled to be a part of such a unique project as the Route 39 Academy. It is an incredibly sustainable development and has been designed in such a way to fit the area’s beautiful landscape.

“This project adds to a number that we have carried out within the education sector and bolsters our many years’ experience on large construction sites.”
