Waterfoot Primary School
The New Build construction of a 1,850m2, 315 places primary school to BREEAM “Very Good” standard to become an exemplar school. The structural steel framed building features tall glazed elevations incorporating natural stone and cedar cladding. Energy-efficient techniques and materials include a natural sedum shallow pitched roof and Modcell straw bale super-insulated panels. The building includes underfloor heating from the use of ground source heat pumps; natural wind catcher ventilation units and a percentage of the school’s electricity requirements will be provided by the use of Photo Voltaic Solar Panels. The external works are designed with the environment in mind, including a school kitchen garden which utilises a rainwater collection system.
