Work began this month on the new 5-class teaching block at Meole Brace School, Shrewsbury. The main contractor, Read Construction Ltd, priorities were security and fencing followed by tree protection works. Clearance could then start on the site prior to commencement of ground works and excavations later in the month.
The exciting new building will achieve the Passivhaus standard which will guarantee low energy consumption, high efficiency and very good levels of internal comfort. All those involved have a lot to learn from the development of this project and hope to apply the principles more widely to other developments in the future.
