Pavilion for Dormers Wells School
Sports Changing Pavilion for Dormers Wells High School. Southall.
Cayford Design was responsible for full design and project implementation for this highly thermally efficient sports pavilion. Using Passivhaus design principles traditional robust masonry construction was selected to suit its use, and to allow construction by a traditional local builder.
A Well Engineered building, fit for purpose, blending in with the existing school building
We used similar finishes and components as the new school building; traditional but well-insulated robust masonry construction was selected to suit its use, and to allow construction by a local builder. A CLT roof allowed speedy completion, minimising of internal finishes, and giving an elegant warm timber ceiling.
The building was modelled to achieve the AECB Silver standard, using full Passivhaus design principles.
Mechanical ventilation heat recovery MVHR allows the space to be well ventilated whilst retaining comfort and energy efficiency. The energy use is predicted to be approximately 36 kW/sqm per year, to result in total annual energy costs in the low £ hundreds.
An elegant and practical building, certified to the AECB Silver Standard (now known as the AECB Building Standard).
