This project has delivered a new-build three stream primary school with community facilities including flexible accommodation for up to 651 primary pupils and 160 nursery children provided over 2-storeys, an 11-a-side grass pitch, a 7-a-side pitch and replacement children’s play park. The project is on track to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.
The site required a net import of material to suit levels determined by fixed boundary constraints and the varying existing levels on the site. Cundall worked closely with the contractor to source suitable recycled fill material from another of their sites, significantly reducing the embodied energy and cost compared with the alternative import of quarried material.
A Transport Assessment was undertaken which considered access locations and routes to and from the new site for all modes of transport - focussing on Safer Routes to Schools. In addition the TA included junction capacity assessment, road accident investigation, trip generation and proposed pedestrian crossings.
Bede Academy provides nursery, primary and secondary provision across two sites in Blyth on the Northumberland coast. The new layout is over three storeys in order to minimise take up of valuable site area on this restricted site.
Pumpherston & Uphall Station Community Primary School is a primary school with community facilities, located within a wider development area and replaces two existing schools within the catchment area and is the first of its kind to be funded by the Scottish Futures Trust.
Cundall have provided sustainability advice for Ravenswood School for Girls for a number of years. Work has included carrying out an ESD audit of the existing school providing recommendations on how to improve the efficiency of the school.
