Description

Replacing the existing school, the new Sidney Stringer Academy delivers a contemporary learning environment located in the Swanswell area of Coventry with the facilities comprising a sixth form centre, specialist teaching and social learning spaces spread over three floors together with an Enterprise and Innovation Centre.

The Academy incorporates passive building techniques including heavyweight building structure and improved building fabric beyond Building Regulations Part L2a requirements. Additionally, the concrete soffits are exposed, allowing the thermal mass of the building to act as a heat sink and ensuring a steady internal temperature.
