Lytchett Minster School, New Teaching Facility


To provide this extremely popular school with further classroom accommodation, this new build 3 storey teaching facility provides flexible teaching spaces, centred around a large social atrium area, containing a glass ‘ walk on’ roof.
The new building uses mixed mode natural ventilation and gas absorption heat pumps to deliver an extremely efficient low-energy building, which is filled with natural light.

Close co-ordination was essential between ION Consulting Engineers and the building’s Architect, Western Design.
The project is currently under construction, with completion scheduled for early 2015.

St Peters School, Devizes

This new low energy primary school incorporates cutting edge architectural and M&E collaboration. Low carbon gas absorption heat pumps, natural ventilation and passive design features reduce the overall energy footprint of the development, surpassing building regulation requirements in excess of 30%. The school has been designed to be expanded in future phases as the local population grows, by the careful selection of scalable plant and services.

Farnborough Hill School, Farnborough

A series of linked projects carried out at this exclusive private school saw the provision of an upgraded swimming pool, technology workshops, and new music, drama and science rooms.
