HEATHFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL, AYR

Case Study

CLIENT NAME: sOUTH aYRSHIRE COUNCIL

Industry: Real Estate

Project Value: £3 million

Construction dates: 2013 - 2014

Services provided: MEP, Sustainability & Utilities

Achievement: TÜV SÜD have delivered Heathfield Primary School High to BIM Level 2 and achieved a BREAM Excellent rating


The new build element of the project formed an extension to an existing school which was built circa 1900.

Given that the existing building was used to supply the extension with minor plant upgrades, additional sustainable design methods had to be introduced such as low air permeability, increased u-valves, LED lights and photovoltaic panels to achieve the energy targets.

At an early stage we engaged with the design team, especially the architect, to set out the energy targets we needed to achieve to enable us to gain our Section 6 Compliance, achieve our EPC Rating of B and achieve our BREEAM Excellent which we were successful in delivering.

The incorporation of the extension provided the school and community, not only increased space but utilised current technologies and trends to enable the schools education methods to move into the 21st century.
