Work is now complete on a £4.4 million expansion of Kingswood Academy in Hull, following an increase in demand for places. Howells Patent Glazing was appointed by Sewell Construction to design, supply and install three flat-top roof-lights for the new building. The three flat-top rooflights sit amongst a sea of solar panels and to either side of two rooftop air conditioning units. They each achieve a U-value of 1.0 Wm 2 K. The rooflights were specified to maximise natural light in the atrium. To achieve the highest possible light levels, Howells used its structural glass rafters to reinforce the structure. There are six 39mm glass rafters in total; two per rooflight, each made from Class 2 safety glass.
