CASE STUDY – SOLIHULL SCHOOL, DAVID TURNBULL MUSIC SCHOOL
David Turnbull Music School
Axis Patterned Aluminium Sheets
Malcolm Payne Group
Project Background Solihull School opened the doors of the David Turnbull Music School in Spring 2010. The £3 million selfcontained building on the Warwick Road campus offers pupils one of the most comprehensively equipped and technologically advanced music facilities in the region. As a result, the independent school’s capacity has increased to involve many more of its 1,000 pupils in learning, practising and performing music.
Lead specifiers, Malcolm Payne Group (Birmingham) provided architectural excellence in the creation of the integrated music centre for teaching, study and performance. The David Turnbull Music School – named after a former head of music at Solihull School – includes a spacious 100-seat recital room and a recording studio with direct audio and video links to the main performance spaces. The practice, teaching and ensemble rooms are grouped around a central atrium, together with a computer suite designed to encourage a new generation of young composers. Project Solutions Gooding Aluminium’s Axis patterned sheets have received a chorus of approval since being utilised as decorative and protective facing panels to the recital room entrance doors at the school. The clean cut lines of the matt anodised Axis pattern deliver a crisp contemporary look and by minimising undesirable reflections, deliver high levels of optical performance. Patterned aluminium sheets are available from GA in a wide selection of patterns and finishes. For more project and product details you can visit www.goodingalum.com

Aluminium awareness information Key Facts: •
Aluminium is great for incorporating into environmentally sensitive applications, such as this one.
Environmentally friendly aluminium is the only recyclable material that more than pays for it’s own re-cycling costs!
Re-cycling aluminium into new forms only requires 5% of the energy that originally produced it.
All manufactured aluminium is effectively a stored energy bank for future generations.
Aluminium is only 1/3rd the weight of steel.
Aluminium’s surface has a self generating and repairing oxide coating which makes it corrosion resistant and therefore less expensive to maintain than steel and other corrodible metals.
