Marston Green Infant School

Springwoods delivered a timber structure environmentally-friendly classroom for Marston Green Infant School in Birmingham.

The scope of work was for the provision of a low cost, highly sustainable outbuilding on a constrained site to meet the needs of a busy inner-city school. The proposal was to provide a child-safe learning facility and provide much needed additional learning space to the infant academy.

The project relied on a new build structural timber panel system to provide an ecologically friendly and energy-efficient building.

Springwoods erected a 12 x 6 m timber-framed extension to the existing timber-framed building.

It also carried out extensive renovation and adaptations inside the school building creating/renovating:

  • A larger unisex bathroom for the infants, complete with low-level wash trough, soft touch taps and four cubicles.

  • A fully DDA compliant washroom for adults.

  • An office space.

  • Access corridor.

  • New drainage, LED lighting and water saving technologies in the bathrooms.

The project team were able to explore ways to allow the ground works to be accommodated during the school’s holiday period and with temporary works for containment for the construction process during term time.

The end result is a bright, airy and spacious classroom building which is a major benefit for teachers and children. An amazing learning environment.

The new extension exceeds all current environmental and energy conservation objectives.
