Norbury Manor College Sixth Form & Enterprise Centre
This project involves the design and construction of a new 6th form and enterprise centre in the grounds of the existing school. The Sixth Form Centre will accommodate 250 new post 16 places. The greater, two storey section of the building will provide accommodation for the sixth form, whilst the single storey section at the Northern end will form an Enterprise Centre. The Enterprise Centre will provide much needed accommodation to help the school in its important contribution to the local LEGI provision and as a Business and Enterprise hub promoting the vision across the borough and enabling primary school students to have access to the business and enterprise provision at the school.
Elementa provided mechanical, electrical, energy and public health engineering services for the project. In terms of sustainability, the aim for this project is to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. In order to achieve this Elementa have undertaken BREEAM workshops and an assessment, produced energy option appraisals and dynamic thermal modelling to inform design decisions regards the most appropriate building materials, renewable technologies, ventilation strategies and heating solutions for the scheme. When implemented these measures will contribute to the delivery of very energy efficient school facilities rated as Excellent within the BREEAM for Schools methodology.
