Steni cladding panels have been used to give a new lease of life to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Falmouth, Cornwall

More than 30m2 of Steni’s fibreglass-reinforced polymer composite colour panels, with a smooth surface of acrylic (cured without the use of solvents) in white and light and dark blue have been installed in horizontal strips on the £300,000 extension to the school. The Steni cladding has a strong visual impact and gives a contemporary feel to relieve what is fundamentally a brick-faced building.
