Description

The new primary school shares the site with the existing Pimlico Academy and abuts both the Pimlico and Dolphin House conservation areas.

An exemplar approach was adopted for the new building based on low energy design principles involving energy demand minimisation though good building envelope design and proficient use of services, before considering deployment of appropriate renewable technologies to decarbonise the building’s energy supply. The building orientation has therefore been optimised to make use of solar gain and daylight penetration together with the use of a heavyweight structure and exposed mass to stabilise the internal temperature.
