We are delighted to be associated with the success of Brandon Primary school, awarded the BREEAM Award 2015 in the Education Category at this year’s BREEAM Awards.
The project is one of a number schemes secured through the Durham County Council Framework Agreement for the provision of BREEAM assessment services. It scored 100% in categories including waste and management, as well as high marks for energy, water and materials.
As one of six shortlisted buildings, the project school was awarded for achieving a BREEAM score 87.74% and only one of a few education projects to retain an ‘outstanding’ rating at post construction.
The development, which also involved project partners Red Box Architecture, is a new build primary school to replace the school facilities on the site of the existing primary school in the village of Brandon in County Durham, providing facilities for some 390 pupils. It is being heralded as a leading example of using sustainable construction techniques and technology, as well as reflecting the ethos of the local community it serves.
Emily Sagris, Principal Sustainability Consultant at WYG, added: “The BREEAM Award is recognition of the latest innovation and technology to support sustainability and the communities we work in. We are delighted to be associated with this award and we thank Red Box Architecture and Durham Council for their support on this fantastic project.”
