Brentside School

With cost parameters ruling out the use of pre-patinated copper for the Brentside School project, Sotech offered an alternative Optima TFC aluminium cladding panel with a pvf2 paint finish resembling the natural copper and with a very considerable cost saving.


The architects were delighted to have the opportunity to use a material, which allowed much greater design flexibility to cope with modular sizes, in both flat and curved form.


Pre-formed socketed window pods integrate within the façade. The detailed and accurate manufacturing techniques employed by Sotech allow the fabrication of this pre-coated material without welding.

Once again it is the consistent accuracy during manufacture that allows for the clean lines achieved during installation.
