School Roof-Top utilised for Renewable Energy
Renewable energy has been at the core of the design for the new St Mary Magdalene School at the Greenwich Peninsula in London with the roof-top being used to accommodate 700m² of photovoltaic panels and air source heat pumps. Lang+Fulton have supplied four DeltaWing-90 compounds to visually screen the roof mounted equipment. The crisp aesthetic of the DeltaWing product fulfilled the architect’s brief that the, “Predominant materials have been selected to ensure a robust and durable quality with a civic presence …. and a simple palette to compliment the use of the building and the public realm”.
The compounds were individually designed to suit each of the building’s connecting forms and were constructed out of 359 louvred panels of different sizes in a hot-dip galvanized finish, polyester powder coated in pale grey, RAL7035.
