Lakesmere was contracted by clients Kajima to deliver the roof and wall packages at Brentside High School in Ealing. When the architects’ vision of a green, copper clad building had to be evaluated after it was decided that the material would be far too expensive to use, Lakesmere identified the ideal solution and recommended the use of a Sotech rainscreen system with a pre-quoted antique copper finish. The final result is visually stunning and led to project winning a PPP/PFI award for ‘Best Education Project over £20m’.

Architect' Seymour Harris designed the scheme around the school's existing site, providing facilities not only for its pupils and staff but also the wider community. The scheme is based around three main buildings arranged along a 'street' that acts both as a social gathering area for the School and an entrance way to both the educational and the community facilities.
