Case study - Primary
Elliott completed the prestigious new classroom building at Hayes School in Bromley, Kent, which incorporates a new library, student support facilities, speech and language class, along with provision of a state-of-the-art facility for Media, English and PE teaching.
A reduced carbon footprint was achieved by designing energy efficiency measures into the building. This resulted in a 20% reduction in CO2 compared to current building regulation requirements.
Other sustainable elements of the design include maximising natural daylight through the use of rooflights and a high efficiency condensing boiler supplying low pressure hot water (LPHW) heating. Air conditioning to the classrooms is provided by energy-efficient air source heat pumps.
Case study - Secondary
Elliott was commissioned by Mace and Hertfordshire County Council as part of a 5-year framework agreement, to design and build a new maths and music block at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden.
The design development and detailed specification was taken over by Elliott’s in-house design team and carried out with environmental sustainability as a core consideration. One of the main challenges the team faced was a very rapid construction phase of 32 weeks, which included the demolition of the existing modular classrooms.
Elliott’s construction solution was ideally suited to this project primarily of its sustainability credentials and speed of construction. “We are immensely proud of the finished school which was developed in a good partnership spirit and was a testament to the entire team.”
Nick Daymond, Head of Roundwood Park School.
The contemporary design of the new building is defined by the distinctive roof structure and engaging shaped windows which combined with the bright internal spaces enhance the buildings performance.
- Design scope
The design capabilities of our solutions for the education sector allow you to create buildings that inspire students creating centres of learning that help them reach their full potential. Because we design, build and install our solutions we can ensure uncompromising attention to detail throughout, such as ITC enabled classrooms with intelligently installed cabling, and which allow easy future upgrades.
- Value for money
The standardised nature of our modular solutions allows schools to achieve better value for money by saving time during the design, manufacture and construction phases. Standardisation also saves time and that means you can occupy your new school sooner.
- Quality of build
We can guarantee quality levels because many of the elements are produced in an ISO9001 factory controlled environment. Choosing a modular system means that it can be specified fully compliant with current Building Regulations and the DFES Building Bulletins. All our materials are chosen to provide the highest levels of durability, creating schools that offer a long term low maintenance solution
Our modular solutions are able to achieve the higher levels of BREEAM, the UK’s leading environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. Modular construction also reduces both journeys to site and the amount of waste created compared to conventional build.
Elliott solutions are designed to last for in excess of 50 years which is verified by external structural engineering consultants.
The Elliott 25 years structural warranty gives you the reassurance that your building was not only designed and manufactured to the highest standards but will also provide structural integrity and peace of mind for many years.
