Completion of Passivhaus Primary School
We have recently completed the £11 million Frenchay CofE Primary School, which is the first Passivhaus school in South Gloucestershire. Building work began in June 2021 with Lowfield Timber Frames Ltd supplying and erecting the timber structure. The project delivered new energy efficient, low impact facilities. Key features of the design included high levels of insulation, triple glazing, low energy LED lighting, heating provided by air-source heat pumps and recycling of heat through a Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR) system, which also ensures good air quality throughout the school.
This project was the first of three Passivhaus schools for BAM Construction. We are currently working on the second school with BAM at Elm Park and have another Passivhaus school due on-site next year. We have a great working relationship with BAM and look forward to future projects together.
