For a new £12.4 million secondary teaching block in South Wales, this 19-month project needed to realise an institution fit for the 21st century – as well as meeting BREEAM “Excellent” and BIM Level 2 standards.
Community Windpower Ltd
Sustainability at the Core
As its name suggests, Community Windpower is leading the UK’s drive towards renewable energy, instrumental in the identification, design, development and operation of on-shore wind energy generation projects. So, its new offices understandably needed to put sustainability at the core – without compromising on aesthetics or acoustics.
Building in sustainability from concept to completion means considering every aspect of it at every stage, from energy self-sufficiency to water recycling. When it came to the ceiling, METAL MicroLook 8 Lay-In planks delivered a contemporary aesthetic with superior acoustic performance. More importantly, the solution enhanced the ecological credentials of the build, with Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver materials minimising waste and environmental impact – helping to make this green building a landmark of future-facing sustainable construction.
