A seamless finish from Metal Technology

Advanced architectural aluminium systems from Metal Technology have underpinned the transformation of Clifton House from 1960s office block to state-of-the-art student accommodation.

The Nord Architecture designed project in Glasgow city centre’s Park Conservation area offers fantastic spaces for living and socialising. Designed by Bo Concept – the iconic Danish designer – these student flats offer sleek modern and contemporary design combined with large communal areas including the ‘Work, Rest and Play’ area on the ground floor and breakout social spaces on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors.

Metal Technology’s System 17 Silicone pointed and High Rise curtain walling was used extensively thought-out the project. The end result is testament to System 17’s limitless flexibility and aesthetic appeal whilst meeting all structural requirements and delivering high levels of thermal and weather performance.

Metal Technology system 5-20Hi+ tilt and turn windows were used with turn lock handles providing additional safety in their operation by students. System 5-20D Hi+ high performance thermally enhanced doors were also specified throughout. Metal Technology Hi+ systems are part of their range, offering seamless aesthetics combined with full security compliance, impressive weather performance and greatly enhanced U values.
