Bushbury Hill Primary School, Wolverhampton

A new school built on a sloping site with large amounts of buried services and archaeology, some of which required careful excavation and examination before construction could commence. The school is entirely timber framed and built to the PassivHaus standard which requires a high level of coordination between the design team with no cold bridging, even at the foundations which are piled but had to incorporate thermal breaks. Ground modelling software was used to calculate earthworks cut and fill volumes to aid setting the building at the optimum level.

Completed 2012.
