MMU Students Union wins RIBA Regional Award

RED Systems are pleased to have been appointed specialist sub-contractor the the external glazing envelope and are delgghted the project has picked up an award. The building itself was designed by Fielden Clegg Bradley studios and is sited next to its Stirling shortlisted Manchester School of Art. But it is quite different in use and general ambience. From outside the immediate impression is one of precision – with a very ordered differentiation between the mechanical pattern of the German brick-faced precast system and the simple vertical glazing slots – which on close inspection reveals its high quality through the use of toggle glazed curtain walling and stainless steel finishes to the exterior frames.
