Opportunity:

The college is embarking on a capital development programme to improve the provision of indoor sports facilities for its 1,300 pupils. We will be working on the Eton Sports and Aquatic Centre, one of the two projects within the programme. This is a three-story building, comprising a 25m indoor pool, diving facilities, a moveable floor, as well as several sports and spectator facilities, including a four-court badminton hall, changing facilities, viewing area, and bar. The building will be primarily naturally ventilated, with opening windows and vents supplied by NACWL.

Proposal:

NACWL were appointed by GRAHAMS to design, supply, and install the external facade glazing, roof lights, and internal dividing pool screens of its new indoor sports facilities. This will be through a combination of Schueco and Aluprof products, to meet the demanding specifications and quality required.

“NACWL provided the specialist subcontractor design, supply and installation of the external facade including glazing, roof lights, and internal dividing pool screens of Eton Colleges new indoor sports facilities.

We were particularly impressed by NA’s communication and collaboration throughout the Construction programme, we found the project management team to be attentive and courteous. They came up against some difficult challenges and were flexible and supportive, successfully designing, manufacturing and installing a bespoke solution. Their expertise and commitment both pre and post tender has helped us deliver a high quality facade. We certainly would have no hesitation in working with NACWL again”
