Project Overview

Championing our Patrwm 21 model alongside our partners Architype and WSP, Dawnus has completed the design and construction of Trimsaran Community Primary School and Ysgol Gymraeg Parc-y-Tywyn Passivhaus accredited primary schools. We have also been awarded three further schools, currently at design stage.

Ysgol Trimsaran in Carmarthenshire, the first building completed by Dawnus to Passivhaus standard, was only the second school in Wales to be accredited to Passivhaus, the world’s most rigorous energy and comfort standard.

We are currently delivering Ysgol Maesydre and Salop Road Passivhaus primary schools and Ysgol Bro Hyddgen Passivhaus 3-18 through school, the first of its kind. These projects are testament to our ongoing commitment to being at the forefront of the design and construction of comfortable and sustainable learning environments that promote success in education.
