The brief

The design and installation of building services on the Winterstoke Hundred Academy in Weston Super Mare, which is part of the Cabot Learning Federation.

The project, constructed on a new site at Locking Parklands, is North Somerset’s first Net Zero Carbon in Operation (NZCiO) school. The building has been carefully designed to meet rigorous environmental standards making it the first NZCiO school in the region.

The new building provides modern classrooms and teaching facilities, sports hall and pitches, alongside external social and learning spaces.

Securing a BREEAM Excellent rating for energy efficiency and 35% biodiversity net gain, the 80,000m2 academy also features solar panels on the roof to generate electricity in the classrooms and send power to the national grid, providing green energy for the community.

The new three storey facility will house up to 900 students, with future expansion plans to accommodate up to 1,200 students. Alongside the current Beaufighter campus, the two sites will cover key stages 3 and 4 as well as post 16 students.

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.
