Thru-Wall’s innovative and integrated modular offsite approach has ensured a first-class finish for the new £38million Manchester Creative and Media Academies.

The structural insulated panels were delivered to site and were installed within just 10 days before a fabricated aluminium rainscreen solution that boasts six separate colour finishes to achieve the architect’s external visual effect was installed.

To demonstrate the advantages of Thru-Wall at the tender stage, the Thru-Wall product engineers produced a fully engineered structural bay mock up that worked technically, structurally and under performance to meet strict standards set down by the main contractor.

The finished school will have two four-storey buildings that will be able to house 1500 students, as well as providing accommodation for 120 post-16 education students.
