Services were designed for the new ten classroom teaching block, services included, boiler plant, underfloor heating, low energy natural ventilation utilising automatically controlled
side wall inlets and roof outlets supported by full thermal model calculations
The project was undertaken in 2 phases; the first phase included 6 classrooms and ancillary facilities for staff including staff room and WCs; the second phase comprised of 4 classrooms
The building has high levels of insulation and has been designed where possible to be naturally ventilated
The classrooms have chimneys that induce natural air circulation.
Louvres set above windows regular air into the building. In this way the building structure can be cooled at night to reduce temperatures in the summer
CO2 levels are monitored and fresh air admitted to reduce drowsiness
A full electrical design was included together with their integration to the existing site services
The key benefits on this project were delivery of a scheme to meet limited budget constraints.
