DKA achieve BREEAM Excellent

21 January 2014

Sustainability is a key driver at DKA which is reflected in all the buildings we design. Our brief for Ashley Down Primary School (Brunel Field) was to achieve a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating by Bristol City Council, however the design team set itself the target to get an ‘Excellent’ rating. This was achieved by specifying the correct construction materials for thermal performance, and utilising the orientation and layout to maximise daylight, rather than solely depending on renewables.

Congratulations to all involved for a another great achievement!
