Project: David Turnbull Music School

Location: Solihull

Product: Axis Patterned Aluminium Sheets

Finish: Matt (Anodised)

Specifier: Malcolm Payne Group

Project Background

Solihull School opened the doors of the David Turnbull Music School in Spring 2010. The £3 million self-contained building on the Warwick Road campus offers pupils one of the most comprehensively equipped and technologically advanced music facilities in the region.

As a result, the independent school’s capacity has increased to involve many more of its 1,000 pupils in learning, practising and performing music.

Axis Patterned Aluminium sheets – Protective Facing Panels

Lead specifiers, Malcolm Payne Group (Birmingham) provided architectural excellence in the creation of the integrated music centre for teaching, study and performance. The David Turnbull Music School – named after a former head of music at Solihull School – includes a spacious 100-seat recital room and a recording studio with direct audio and video links to the main performance spaces.

The practice, teaching and ensemble rooms are grouped around a central atrium, together with a computer suite designed to encourage a new generation of young composers.

Project Solutions

Gooding Aluminium’s Axis patterned sheets have received a chorus of approval since being utilised as decorative and protective facing panels to the recital room entrance doors at the school.

The clean cut lines of the matt anodised Axis pattern deliver a crisp contemporary look and by minimising undesirable reflections, deliver high levels of optical performance.

Aluminium Awareness information:

Key Facts:

• Aluminium is great for incorporating into environmentally sensitive applications, such as this one.
• Environmentally friendly aluminium is the only recyclable material that more than pays for it’s own re-cycling costs!
• Re-cycling aluminium into new forms only requires 5% of the energy that originally produced it.
• All manufactured aluminium is effectively a stored energy bank for future generations.
• Aluminium is only 1/3rd the weight of steel.
• Aluminium’s surface has a self generating and repairing oxide coating which makes it corrosion resistant and therefore less expensive to maintain than steel and other corrodible metals.

Gooding Aluminium are a national and international supplier of a wide range of high quality aluminium sheets, aluminium profiles and ‘made to order’ aluminium products with ‘invisible’ fixing solutions.

Being both lightweight and ductile, aluminium readily lends itself to fabrication.

However the un-initiated should tread carefully as there is no substitute for experience in specifying fabricated aluminium. It might, therefore, prove helpful if I share some key pointers with you, and these are;

ProductionTolerances: How long is a piece of string? There is no such thing in aluminium fabrication as an exact dimension. Every measurement is subject to a production tolerance. If sizing is critical, make sure you agree specifics with us before fabrication commences. If requested and to ensure a satisfactory ‘fit’, we can normally provide measurements that are ‘no greater than’ or ‘no less than’.

Aesthetics: To quote from Shakespeare ‘Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye’. Workshop processes will literally leave their mark on all metal surfaces. If aesthetics are important, and they often are, consider the intended location of the fabricated items. Lighting conditions, viewing distance and angle, etc., are among the elements that need to be taken into account.

Working from the premise that ‘prevention is better than cure’, sheet materials can be covered with a peelable protective film prior to production. This best practice precaution certainly assists in reducing, but not necessarily completely eliminating, surface marking.  Sheets are normally supplied with one good side (unless otherwise specified). It is also sometimes possible to ‘hide’ surfaces liable to workshop abrasions, as long as the visible faces are identified to us prior to fabrication.

Fast & Furious 6 is the latest in a line of American Street Racing Action Films and is, in part, being made here in the UK.

Our Impressional Aluminium Patterned sheeting is playing a major role as an interior wall cladding backdrop in some of the scenes for this eagerly anticipated 6th film in the series.

With over 600 square metres of this edgy aluminium pattern you’re sure to see this distinctive domed circular pattern sharing the limelight with leading actor Vin Diesel when the film is released later in the year.

Aluminium is often selected as a set background for films with high tech / futuristic themes.

Mission Impossible, Event Horizon and James Bond’s The World is Not Enough are just 3 of the films Gooding Aluminium have previously supplied aluminium patterned sheet for.

Impressional sheets are available in mill, anodised and powder coated finishes. These tactile aluminium panels can either be supplied in standard sizes or with dimensions to suit individual requirements.

When talking of kick plates in an architectural sense what do you think of? Most would probably identify with the Oxford Dictionary’s definition, ‘a metal plate at the base of a door or panel to protect it from damage or wear’.

The answer is technically correct but kick plates can be and are so much more than this! Things have moved on since the O.D.’s definition was written!

Kick Plates

Kick Plates: Pattern GA IMSQS101

When considering door and surface protection solutions, kick plates, in today’s commercial and public interiors, are considered as just part of an overall whole.

Surface protection in buildings has become integral with the design plan. Accordingly colours and patterns for such applications are co-ordinated with the rest of the interior décor, fixtures, fittings etc.
