Farnborough School, Nottinghamshire

This project involved the construction of a new school building and sports facilities on the site of an existing school. We were appointed to provide both civil and structural consultancy services. Price & Myers Civil Engineering worked on the ground modelling, foul and surface water drainage strategies and hard landscaping design including a new permeable staff carpark. It was a requirement of planning that the sports pitches must comply with Sport England Regulations which require a slope no steeper than 1:80 along and 1:40 across the field of play. The natural gradient of the site was 1:35. We designed a solution which did not include the use of retaining walls and aimed to reduce the amount of material being transported off site.
