Project Overview

Design and construction of the new Salop Road Passivhaus primary school, using our Patrwm 21 pattern book approach, and refurbishment of the Grade II Listed Maesydre Primary School to achieve BREEAM Excellent.

Salop Road (English medium) Primary School will be a 2254m2, 360-place school designed to BIM level 2, with full kitchen, servery, ALN rooms, pre-school, early years, and community room. The new school will be built on the existing high school playing fields.

Ysgol Maesydre (Welsh medium) was given a Grade II listed status by CADW following award of the contract, therefore the existing 19th Century Baroque revival building will now be sensitively refurbished to achieve vastly improved sustainability credentials in line with the demands of a 21st Century school.

External work to both schools will include development of the surrounding areas as hard and soft landscaped play and sports areas with provision of access and parking.
