Ponteland School

The Challenge

A new Primary school and extended Middle School as part of a PFI Framework Agreement in conjunction with Waring and Netts Architects

The Solution

The Ponteland First School Redevelopment involved the construction of three separate buildings:  a 315 place First school, a changing room block and a fifth form centre for two separate schools on a shared campus. A nursery was also provided with a separate entrance and play space at the front of the school. Construction involved cladding the building with render and timber boarding on wood fibre board insulation and lightweight metal framing with biomass boilers to provide high levels of sustainable construction.
