We provided full multidisciplinary design services (RIBA stages A-L) to deliver a functional and fit-for-purpose exemplar Zero-Carbon Primary School built to Passivhaus standards. It is a replacement 420 pupil Primary (plus nursery) school on an existing school site.
- Investment sum: £8.9m
- Anticipated Cost Savings: 45% of the typical energy used by a school of its size
- Awarded a Quality Approved Passivhaus certificate in February 2012 for “the comfort and quality of the internal environment with extremely low energy consumption˝
- First Passivhaus school in the United Kingdom and is on target to be what we believe will be the first “true” zero carbon in use school in Europe.
- Winner at the 2014 Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Building Performance Awards.
