An Eco friendly extension to this Primary School, built using H+H High Strength Celcon Blocks and Celcon Plus Blocks.
Batheaston is a ‘Green Flag’ awarded primary school and is part of the international ‘Eco-Schools’ programme guiding educational establishments towards sustainability by working various green principles into the everyday running of the school. The school was assessed to ensure it met the Green Flag checklist.
Further developments taking place include an area for wildlife and a straw bale building for additional teaching space. The school will also use their adjoining field as an outdoor classroom alongside an artificial badger sett, amphibian homes and a dormouse nest.
H+H aircrete blockwork was used for the external cavity walls in the new hall, reception, classrooms and kitchen facility. Six different wall types were used with various decorative renders and locally sourced stone applied to the outside of the building.
This demonstrates the variety of finishes that can be applied to aircrete walls.
