The Q3 Academy is a government commissioned Design and Enterprise Academy. At the core of the new building lies a contemporary open space around which key learning and meeting spaces are located. Novum was contracted to design, furnish and install the ETFE roof over this space which consists of 40 triangular-shaped air filled pillows. A steel support above the glulam beams supports the aluminum profiles which clamp the ETFE pillows. The resulting bright, spacious area creates a stimulating learning environment for students.
