The Soundcraft solution was perfect for the project. Not only were the performance requirements met, but the use of timber rather than steel gave a much warmer feel to apartments. We were delighted with the result. 

Mike Haines, Senior Surveyor, Fairview 

Galliford Try and the All England Club were delighted with the timber windows and doors designed, manufactured and installed by Soundcraft. We look forward to working with them again on future projects. 

Mike Bridges, Director, Galliford Try

We have worked with Soundcraft for many years on door entry projects and this was a good example of why they are our preferred security door supplier; high quality products installed to programme with no fuss.

Richard Alliston, Director, Melray

Soundcraft provided us with a thoroughly professional solution to what was proving a difficult package to place. The complexity and demands of the performance specification were particularly challenging, but their solutions and on site management of the installation were very impressive.

Bob Jenkins, Project Director, Carillion 

The quality of the Soundcraft composite system is very good. They worked with us to make the required design changes to ensure smooth fixing on-site. The installation went really well despite the challenges of electronic access requirements, high mullions, frameless casements and an 11 metre full height curtain wall system.

Lee Bright, Site Manager, Higgins Construction

D’overbroeck College

D'overbroeck College, TSH Architects

Working with Kingerlee, Soundcraft’s Hybrid curtain walling, windows and doors were specified for the New Sixth Form Study Centre & Performing Arts Building at D’overbroeck, opening in September 2017.

Designed by TSH Architects, the project reflects the desire to preserve the original Summerhill Villa which was a grand Italianate villa built in 1823 and adds to it a modern touch while preserving the natural surroundings. 

The former Masonic Lodge has been transformed into a Sixth Form Centre with several Science Laboratories, a library, a school hall and a spacious auditorium, including a stunning 300mm deep system for the college main entrance door.  

Soundcraft supplied and installed the following:

• Hybrid Series 3 curtain walling is a unique timber-aluminium composite system

• Hybrid Series 1 casement window 

• SPW501 security door 

As a result of this, the work has led to the creation of a striking new school Hall, providing a fantastic auditorium for music and drama as well as daily dining facilities for students and staff.
