A fast-track, open book delivery process was used to deliver the facilities within a programme that optimised the school’s calendar, whilst minimising any disruption to the day-to-day running of the school.

Environmental sustainability was one of the leading philosophies behind this development. Sustainable materials and methods were incorporated throughout the buildings, with a key feature being the science building’s thermal warm roof and exposed concrete used on the floors and walls creates added thermal mass, ensuring heating costs are kept to a minimum.
