South Molton Community College, North Devon 

Project Highlights 

300 m2 Textile Studio and Learning Resource Centre 
Our first project in the county of Devon 
Record temperatures and reduced working hours 
Innovative engineering to achieve large open plan spaces 

The Background 

Due to predicted growth in pupil numbers South Molton Community College planned to construct a Design and Technology Room with a Learning Reource/Library area. 
The local council adopted a passive environmental design to minimise daylight, minimise solar gain and carbon emissions.  

Our Solution 

We delivered a SIPs design (DfMA), manufacture and installation package with:  
fabric first with high levels of insulation and airtightness  
planned installation strategy to increase productivity  
extensive DfMA phase to simplify the project  
modelled & engineered solution to limit thermal bridging  
timed deliveries to maintain the 'live school' environment 

The Outcome 

A new single storey standalone block creating a dynamic learning environment through visually, thermally and acoustically comfortable spaces. 
small team installed structure within 3 weeks 
minimal disruption to the local community 
low carbon footprint 
highly energy efficient buiding to minimise carbon
