Education – Delucy Primary School

Actavo | Building Solutions was commissioned by construction contractor Lakehouse to provide a new two-story modular facility at Delucy Primary School, Greenwich.The modular building compromises of twenty four modular units that make up a building with six classroom blocks, two group rooms, office space, male and female WC’s and cloak stores. Included in the project design and construction were internal and external staircases and additional external WC’s adjacent to the playground.

The offsite construction included mono-crystalline PV panels to increase energy efficiency, a platform lift for disabled access to the upper floor and mono-draft wind catchers to increase natural ventilation and reduce energy use.The project was finished in coloured Trespa cladding to give it a distinctive look and was designed to meet BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards.

“The expansion has provided space to accommodate the growth of the school and supported better organisation of the additional classes. Separate work from Actavo’s building but integrated with it is the outside learning environment-complete with a staged area and a mud pie kitchen for the 90 children in our reception class. Through 3D animation we were able to see how the new building will be integrated into the current school environment.”
