The brief

Briggs & Forrester completed the MEP services on the primary schools which are part of the Council’s 21st Century Schools programme, a long-term improvement scheme that will see £135 million invested to deliver top-class facilities and ultra-modern learning environments.

South Point Primary School is the first Net-Zero Carbon Schools in Wales, greatly reducing greenhouse gas emissions, neutralising the school’s environmental impact. This project is a great example of Glamorgan Council leading the way for future net-zero carbon schools in Wales. The new build school will provide 210 school places and 48 part-time nursery places.

St David’s School, which is built on the existing school site, provided an additional 70 places increasing the capacity from 140 to 210. The two-storey development consists of classrooms, a hall for sport and dining, offices, a staffroom and breakout areas.

What we did for this project...

We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.

The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.

We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
