Located in a Conservation Area, the new build comprises a high quality, community focussed facility that promotes a positive design within the local context.

Materials and components have been composed with a modern twist to create a striking twenty-first century facility that inspires learners to Achieve their best, Challenge themselves and Enjoy their learning.

 

 

A wide range of energy efficiency measures have been designed into the new campus to reduce the overall energy consumption and CO2 emissions of the development.

 

A modular SIPs panel frame that allows a rapid frame construction was used. The fast-track construction using innovative products and techniques allows the building to be enclosed quickly and also achieves excellent levels of air tightness and increased thermal performance. This approach reduces preliminary costs as well as reducing energy consumption.
