In November 2012 Fireglass Direct were delighted to have been asked to design and install glazed roof canopies for the new school building for Tor Bank Special School, in Dundonald Northern Ireland.
Tor Bank is a nurturing support network where parents, teachers and nursing staff work together to create and employ programmes which meet the needs of individual pupils however complex their learning requirements may be; enabling each pupil to achieve their potential.
The design specification we were given was to provide shaped glass canopies capable of supporting seasonal weather patterns (ice and snow!) while providing a covered walkway around the building, and adding to the feeling of space.
The project was undertaken for Graham Construction, and was our first contract for this principal contractor; beginning an association which has now blossomed into a successful working relationship. This project demonstrated our ability to bring vision to life, in a practical yet artistic way. Check out our other Education projects to gain an appreciation of our diversity in this sector.
