PassivClass Modular Classroom in London

Smallwood Primary School

Tooting, South West London

t

An additional early year’s school classroom module was urgently required by Wandsworth Borough Council to meet their statutory schooling obligations. The initial intention was to procure a ‘Standard’ type modular building to accommodate the class.

l

Cotaplan were hired for Design, QS, Planning, Procurement, Contract Management and PH consultation services.

Cotaplan won a competitive Design and Build tender to deliver this highly efficient building and the first of its type in the country in a window of only 12 weeks.

i

This Passiv Haus certified classroom was built using the floor, steels and beams from Cotaplan’s stock of recycled building components – reducing cost; waste and construction lead times. The building has a PAUL MVHR system which constantly refreshes the air and responds to CO2 levels in the building, providing outstanding interior air quality. The classroom also utilises ground source heating.

v

“Passiv Haus is a taxing requirement to achieve in any type of building. However to meet this standard using re-purposed materials in such a short lead time is remarkable.”

Construction was completed in 8 weeks and was completed for September 2014.
