MEP, Energy & Sustainability
Located on the site of the former Bankhead Academy, the new Stoneywood School consists of a two stream primary school and 60 place nursery. The design has created a state-of-the-art school building which delivers a modern, congenial and healthy learning and working environment helped by a 'breathing building' approach to ventilation and an open glulam beam structure.
Teaching is spread across 16 classrooms, each with direct access to the external landscape and flexible teaching areas, whilst sports provision includes a 3G synthetic pitch. The school design has been developed around a school heart concept, with a series of restrained and elegant 'lantern' teaching pavilions surrounding the core community and assembly spaces. Each pavilion is centred with a large top lit activity space encircled by classroom teaching spaces. Every teaching space in turn opens out directly to the external teaching environment. The school building is contained within a sensitively designed landscape environment which includes learning and play space, amphitheatre seating areas and woodland walks.
We were delighted to have designed the MEP for this stunning facility alongside architects Scott Brownrigg, structural engineers Fairhurst and F&G as cost consultants. The school was built by main contractor Morgan Sindall and opened this summer in time for the school term.
