We were asked to assist with Loxdale Primary School's Early Years Expansion programme by delivering a first-class, fit-for purpose facility that would help cater for early years, Year 1 and Year 2 groups effectively and in an inspiring environment.

Client Brief

With an increased demand for places, the existing school was under pressure to accommodate the local demand.  A radical solution was required.  A new purpose built building to cater for early years, year 1 and year 2 pupils was developed with Wolverhampton Borough Council.  The building had to sit in a very tight space on the existing site, making use of an almost derelict space.  At the same time, a new playground and staff parking facilities were required.

Our Solution

We worked alongside a main contractor for this build, but handled the design and build of the whole school block. This project has several special features including ground source heat pumps, which control temperature and heat water, offering a significant energy reduction. The lighting used is all equipped with automatic daylight monitoring, to adjust automatically to reduce overuse. This building complies with the SBEM requirements for energy and building performance.  In all, this building is totally self sufficient with kitchen, toilets, storage and everything you would expect from a state of the art facility.

Total build time 15 Weeks

The Result

The final build sits perfectly within the landscape, totally transforming the previous space that was there.  In its place a new car park, playground and of course a stunning new building.

We are delighted with the lovely new facilities that will benefit the children of Loxdale for several years to come. The parents are delighted that the children have a purpose-built unit that is solely for our younger pupils. The space that has been created both inside and outside the building is tremendous and has made a real difference to the children’s education. Thank you.
