Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services complete flagship Cheltenham Leckhampton High School project

Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services have successfully handed over the mechanical, electrical and public health services for Leckhampton Secondary School alongside Kier Construction.

The new 7900m2 school provides state of the art facilities including a 450 seat main hall with raised seating creating a performance space for theatre and the arts, two wings of teaching accommodation around an external courtyard, a four court sports hall, all weather pitches and an activity studio for a full range of indoor sporting activities. Use of the sporting facilities will also be available to the local community outside of school hours.

The flagship project, catering for 900 students aged 11 to 16, aims to help ease the demand for secondary schools in the local area with hopes of achieving net zero carbon thanks to a design that incorporates natural light and ventilation, roof mounted solar panels and passive low energy ventilation techniques.
