The new Science Park Campus will provide significant additional learning and teaching spaces for students and faculty within the existing site. A new library and dining facilities will also be created. For the first time, Elementary School students will share the same site with the Middle and High School.
Cundall provided Building Services and Structure engineering for the American International School of Guangzhou’s Science Park Campus.
AISG’s Science Park campus currently sits on a hillside site area of almost 30,000m2, allowing for an expansion of the school’s current recreational amenities to include an indoor running track, three sports fields, a tennis court, a 25m pool plus rooftop play space. In addition, a designated underground parking area with vehicle charging points will be built within the site for parents, guests and school events.
The student-centred new campus will retain much of the existing building and integrate both the internal and external spaces to allow for contemporary approaches to education.
Sustainable design features include natural ventilation of key spaces, covered pedestrian walkways and collection of rainwater run-off with extensive shading of glazed façades. Natural and locally-sourced materials dominate the selection of internal and façade materials.
The design also includes a number of environmentally-friendly features including solar-heated water and solar panels generating electricity and sustainable irrigation systems.
