Overview

TWilbury Primary School is a 4 form entry school and the work consisted of 20,000 sq ft of new floor area to provide a new nursery wing, along with sports facilities and a dozen new classrooms for the school.


Added value

The client’s brief contained stringent environmental requirements to avoid the use of mechanical cooling as well as consideration of acoustic issues to provide a good environment for learning.

By working closely with main contractor, Durkan Pudelek, we were able to ensure the design met BB100 (fire safety) and BB93 (acoustic design) with the minimum of conflicts. Design team meetings were also held to improve the value engineering, in particular around the extensive use of fire rated acoustic glass partitions. The NHBC surveyor was also able to give guidance on the access strategy, based on our experience of previous schemes.

The local NHBC site inspector carried out all site inspections from foundations through to successful completion.
