Lowfields supplied and erected a new CIW primary school in Welshpool. The school was a large project built to Passiv Haus certification. The school has a superior level of insulation and was built to be airtight. It also has a heat recovery and ventilation system and solar panels on the roof to minimise running costs.
Welshpool Church in Wales Primary School is the latest project the council has delivered under its 21st Century School Programme. The new school, which will help the council deliver its Strategy for Transforming Education in Powys, is the first Passivhaus primary school to be built by the council. A great Energy Efficient School Build Project.
“This scheme will provide a contemporary and energy efficient school that will serve the children of Welshpool well for years to come. Producing a building of this size that reaches these high standards is a big achievement and one that everyone who has worked on the school should be proud of.”- Steven Owen, Managing Director of Pave Aways.
