The project

Cardiff University’s Business School is an AACSB and AMBA-accredited business school offering students a variety of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The world’s first Public Value business school, the faculty wants to bring humanity, sustainability, generosity and innovation to the business sector.

The university wanted to create a new centre with state-of-the-art lecture theatres, study zones and a high-tech financial trading room to appeal to business students from around the world. Main contractor ISG Ltd called upon Dudley’s Aluminium to apply their expertise of curtain walling and glazing to the project.

The build

We were proud to create Wales’ first twin skin façade, combining Kawneer AA100 structural silicone glazed and capped curtain walling. The twin skin façade offers the school a number of benefits by playing a key role in allowing natural ventilation and providing acoustic protection from the nearby railway line. We also installed Kawneer AA541 windows, manual and electric window gear, and manual, automatic, folding and sliding doors, helping the project achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
