MALLUSK-based Brett Martin has completed a project for the Royal College of Art’s new £135 million Battersea campus in London.

The Co Antrim plastics company was contracted to provide architectural polycarbonate glazing for the roof of the development.

It marks the largest ever investment for the arts university, which has around 3,000 students.

Designed by leading international architects Herzog & de Meuron, Brett Martin was selected to supply its Marlon Clickfix architectural polycarbonate glazing system for the rooftop design feature which runs the full length of the building, filling the vast top floor design space with natural light.

“It is a fantastic project to have been involved with due to the prestige of the college and the striking visual design of the building,” said director Paul Martin.

“With the high-profile nature of this project and the fact we can now offer even more energy efficient materials means that we are seeing even more demand from around the world.”
