MAC Project Wins Stirling Prize

Burntwood School RIBA Stirling Prize Winner

Burntwood School, a large comprehensive girls’ school in Wandsworth, London has won the coveted RIBA Stirling Prize for the UK’s best new building. Now in its 20th year, the RIBA Stirling Prize is the UK’s most prestigious architecture prize.

MAC Roofing were chosen for this prestigious project to provide waterproofing for the flat roof, for which a monolithic hot melt system was specified.

The architects for this project, AHMM, created six new faculty buildings and two large cultural buildings linking original buildings by renowned 1950s/1960s architect Sir Leslie Martin. Every building is full of light and air with double height spaces at the end of each corridor to increase natural daylight and create well-framed views. It offers a range of teaching spaces from conventional classrooms to interactive open spaces.
