Education - Godwin Primary School





Previous Arrow Next Arrow






Following on from the success of our Parsloes and Southwood School Expansion Projects for the same Client, this project repeated the use of cross-laminated timber to deliver a rapid off-site fabricated structure to provide a two-storey 7-classroom block with break-out and circulation space, WC’s Group Rooms and Offices.
 
The new building connected to the main school by a covered external walkway. The CLT structure was insulated and clad in Fundermax laminate rain screen cladding. Windows and doors are polyester powder coated aluminium and the flat roof is Sarnafil single ply membrane on cut-to-falls insulation.
 
Internally, walls were either dry lined or left exposed to showcase the cross laminated timber which was of fair-face quality and fire-retarded.
 
Fissured plasterboard ceilings and carpet in the classrooms aid the acoustic performance of the rooms.
 
The building is heated using roof mounted air source heat pumps which provide 20% of the building’s energy from a renewable source. Undefloor heating to all areas avoids the use of radiators to perimeters of rooms.
 
Within an existing courtyard we built a single storey “Staff Pavilion”. This was also constructed in CLT & clad in the same materials as the classroom extension. The CLT structure was delivered & crane-lifted into the courtyard during school Easter holidays.
