The school developed a design with a local architect that proved unaffordable an inspired solution was required for a sustainable and environmentally friendly building within the available budget. 
The solution had to maintain the design intent to deliver a building comprising two Flexible Learning Spaces, Changing Areas & Toilet Facilities. 

Solution 

Built in an unused area of the site with a mound excavated and piled foundations required to support the structure. A retaining wall was also required to support the land around the building. 
A hybrid structure to achieve the ā€˜Lā€™ shaped design with a shallow mono pitched roof to each wing & a central raised flat roof over the entrance. 
Delivery strategy with access via a 3 metre gate shared with the school nursery. 
Ultra low energy solution to avoid a gas supply and upgrading the electric system: LED lighting and Heat Pump technology for heating and cooling, innovative electric radiatiors and water heating. 
The external walls consists of 3 horizontal bands of rainscreen cladding in two contrasting colours and the entrance area is finished with a white render.
