Street Design Partnership were invited to join the McGoff Construction Ltd bid team for the project at St Mark’s School, Bredbury, Stockport. The project comprised a stand alone building within the existing primary school grounds and included external works to form new vehicular and pedestrian access and improvement works to existing play areas. The internal layout comprises a nursery unit (0-5 years), crèche, community facility and ancillary rooms.The client’s brief was to ensure that the completed project achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’. Examples of how this was achieved included celestory windows, underfloor heating with individual room controls, BMS control, natural ventilation with remotely controlled window actuators. The brief also required a ‘Secured by Design’ Approval which was achieved after consultation with Greater Manchester Police.
