Healing Science Academy
A £3.6m Design & Build contract to construct a new three-storey classroom block complete with various associated external works at Healing Science Academy in North East Lincolnshire.
The project comprises of a 2700m2 new-build element providing eighteen academic classrooms, a large school library, special educational needs facilities and various staff and welfare amenities. External works including a large colonnade extension to the gym building, external shelters, and extensive landscaping were also incorporated as a part of a separate full-plans application.
A sustainable construction was achieved with the compilation of a dynamic thermal model which successfully proved a naturally ventilated building could be achieved within the scope of the new design by utilising solar control glass, brise soleil and a bespoke dual opening window system throughout the building. Additionally, Solar Photovoltaic panels were incorporated within the expansive roof structure providing energy capable of supplying the new build.
