Description

This new build academy for students aged 11-19 serves the Darlaston and Walsall communities and provides a focal point in the community with its ‘state-of-the-art’ facilities.

Maintaining air quality levels in the classrooms was paramount for this project and therefore a demand-based variable air volume ventilation system was utilised which is operated through the use of CO2 sensors.  In addition, the main atrium environment is controlled utilising daylight controlled dimmable lighting, underfloor heating, concealed smoke aspiration and automatic rooflights which are operated by temperature, wind and rain sensors.
