Downer framing used extensively for The Broxbourne School


Downer our original helping hand, rainscreen framing system, helps lead the way for this exemplary education sector project.

In the words of leading education sector architects – Bond Bryan, The Broxbourne School is a beacon for excellence for modern education.

‘At the heart of a new residential development by Chase Homes in Broxbourne, The Broxbourne School has been designed as a contextual response to its green belt setting and the School’s ambitions and aspirations for its future. The three-storey building, and its external spaces, have been designed to integrate seamlessly with the scale and public realm of the wider development. The School will be home to The Broxbourne Sports Centre and The Broxbourne Music Centre – both of which will serve as very valuable assets for the local community.’

Our rainscreen framing system, Downer DCS031 was used extensively for this ambitious projects as you can see from the supporting suite of images.

A vibrant and contemporary aesthetic was further achieved using complementing, highly durable Swisspearlfibre cement facade panels – Vintago (Colours: VI 061, VI 091) fixed with Sika adhesive onto Swisspearl’s Sigma8 mechanical secret fixing system, and our original Downer DCS031 framing.

We were extremely proud to have won an award for this project in last year’s Facade Awards, thanks to an excellent collaboration with SD Samuels (Special Projects) Ltd, Bond Bryan #architects, ArchitecturePLB, Mid Group Ltd Ltd
