Avtek add University of St Andrews New Student Accommodation to Portfolio

Avtek Solutions have completed the works for world renowned St Andrews University after securing the contract from Sir Robert McAlpine to carry out the design, supply and installation of various façade solutions for two student accommodation buildings.

The new build, four-storey high, Whitehorn Hall for undergraduates and the five-storey Powell Hall for postgraduates, opened their doors to students in October 2018, providing an additional 400 rooms to the university’s campus accommodation facilities.

To complete the works, Avtek Solutions provided the whole turnkey solution including the design, supply and installation of 350m² of Metal Technology System 17 curtain walling, System 4-35HI windows, System 5-20D doors and System 23 louvres for the undergraduate Whitehorn Hall. The contract also required:
