MEP, Energy & Sustainability
TÜV SÜD Real Estate were employed on two different phases of this framework to deliver a total of 21 primary schools until 2015. The schools ranged in size and type and included areas such as swimming pools, special needs, joint campus schools and community facilities.
All schools have been delivered with either a Good or Very Good BREEAM rating and at least a ‘B’ EPC energy rating. Three schools to date have been delivered with an ‘A’ EPC rating. Across all schools, sustainability has been key with various renewable technologies such as CHP, ground source, wind turbines, PV and biomass being used.
Given that the framework was split between 3 partner contractors meaning each partner had a different design team therefore a different approach to design. With the clients brief being the same for each partner it was imperative that the overall design outputs were similar to ensure continuity across the estate, regular inter company design meetings were set up to ensure this was met.
