Barton Hill School Handover

16 February 2016

The Barton Hill Primary School extension was successfully handed over by Skanska to Bristol City Council on Friday and the kids have already moved in to their new space.

As a recent modern development, the need was for expansion rather than modernisation. The scope of the project brief was outlined by Bristol City Council to expand the existing 2 form entry primary school to a 3 form entry primary school as well as improving toilet allocation and to improve the current dining arrangement.

The environmental strategy for the extension utilises natural ventilation, daylight, efficient systems, low energy equipment, and renewable energy. The new building will include the provision of renewable technology to meet the current Bristol City Council planning policy.

As an integrated extension the challenges for the team were working within a working school environment.
