MLM undertook the building services design for the construction of a new Junior School for pupils aged 4-11 in the grounds of the existing school. The building provided seven general teaching rooms, science room, music spaces, a four court sports hall, assembly hall and admin areas.

The mechanical, electrical and public health objective was to provide solutions which integrated and complimented the architecture whilst meeting the design standards. This was achieved through workshops and meetings to provide the final coordinated design philosophy.

A new Senior School is planned for the future, which will be located adjacent to the Junior School. To maximise teaching space and reduce maintenance items the heating and hot water plant for the Senior School has been located in the Junior School plant room with services extended externally ready for the new school when required.

Key Features

  • Naturally ventilated building to all teaching spaces.
  • Underfloor heating to maximise wall and floor space.
  • Automatic lighting control system.
  • Performance lighting and audio systems to the main assembly hall.
  • Integrated access control system.
  • “Secure by Design” CCTV and external lighting.
