University Projects Portfolio

Location: Halifax, N.S.


Halifax Grammar School is a privately operated school in the South End of Halifax. They are currently under way with a significant addition that will fascilitate many more class rooms and work spaces, as well as a gymnasium.

Alumitech will be undertaking the tasks as follows: Punched Windows, Structurally Glazed Curtain Walls, Catpured Atrium Curtain Walls, Composite Zinc &  Aluminum Cladding, as well as all repective entrances.

For the perimeter framing of all windows and curtain walls, Kawneer's 1600UT (Ultra Thermal) System is being employed to achieve a U-Factor of as low as 0.24 across the framing assembly.

Operable windows within said framing will be Alumicor 1350 series vents for captured glazing, and Alumicor 5000 series vents for structurally glazed areas.

Entrance systems on this project will be Kawneer's 560 series Insulclad Doors.

Vision glass will consist of 1" clear tempered sealed glass units with Cardinal Low-E 272 on surface 3, while spandrel glass will be a warm grey finish.

And to trim out all the fine edges of our curtain walls, we will be wrapping surrounding areas with a combination of Zinc Composite and Aluminum Composite cladding, complete witha fire rated core.
