Silverstone Technical College

Case Study: Silverstone University Technical College, Northamptonshire

Silverstone University Technical College is a brand new, state-of-the-art centre of excellence; designed by HKS Architects, the college will be directly facing the legendary Silverstone motor racing circuit, and will specialise in the engineering sector as well as business and technical events management.

This project features Sotech perforated panels, as installed by Metclad Contracts Ltd, which fix on opposing elevations as 4 metre-wide vertical features bands to add detail and relief, as well as help create a visual spectacle to match this unique, multi million pound facility, which was sponsored by Silverstone Circuits, Tresham College and the University of Northampton.

The perforated feature panels used on this project were manufactured from 2mm thick post polyester powder coated aluminium punched with 9mm diameter holes, which is impressive aesthetically and breaks up the appearance of large flat elevations such as these to allow for effects such as back-lighting, veiling or screening.

With huge glass sections and a striking red elements, this is a striking project well worthy of the hub of British sport that it sits across from, and will be an incredible feature of the area when all eyes turn to Silverstone for the Formula 1 championship.
