Project story

Sweco was involved from planning through to construction. The project is constructed in Cross laminated Timber which has challenges in structural and acoustic design. Sweco worked hard with the design team to ensure the scheme was functional and cost effective. As this is an SEN school, the acoustic performance requirements are higher than standard (BB93) schools. We worked closely with the design team to make sure the acoustic specification was fully integrated into the design.

Key features
