Divine Mercy RC Primary School

Maine Road, Manchester

At alsecco, we work with many education teams and schools. This project was a great chance to showcase our Flexewall Impact System.
For the redevelopment of Divine Mercy RC Primary School, we used our external wall insulation. Specified for its excellent resistance to wear and durability, the Flexewall Impact reinforced render system was also chosen for its wide choice of colour palette, enabling the architects to design a striking new school for pupils, staff and the wider community.
The school is a two-storey design, mainly white with coloured render for feature areas, such as around the ground floor windows. The alsecco system was recommended by contractors, Wilmott Dixon, who had previously used the Flexewall system on other schemes and had suggested its consideration for use on this project.
One particular feature of the building, where there is a spine wall of brickwork and render which stands proud, required a lightweight render and alsecco worked closely with us providing specific technical input to realise this particular design feature of the building.

The system offers increased impact resistance, excellent weathering and durability, and is ideal for detailing. It provides a wide range of textures, colour and finishes, making it an ideal façade for schools and other buildings alike.
