The new building provides 11 new classrooms and a new experimental classroom. Replacing the old swimming pool, we worked closely with Hopkins Architects to design this new naturally ventilated building, ensuring the latest ‘Building Bulletin’ best practice standards were applied. The façade was also carefully designed together to minimise heat from the sun, while photo-voltaic panels on the roof and connection to the site wide ground source open loop boreholes provided low carbon solutions. The project also won a Sussex heritage trust award and civic trust award.
