The state of the art £11.5m building is located on a greenfield development site on the eastern edge of Llandudno Junction, adjacent to the Welsh Government’s North Wales Regional Headquarters.
The project consists of a new school, which is part of the Conwy Council’s 21st Century Schools programme. It sees the merge of two existing local primary schools, Ysgol Maelgwyn and Ysgol Nant Y Coedwith, and will cater for 492 pupils.
Patrick Parsons performed a full MEP design on the scheme, which was designed to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ and BIM level 2. Working collaboratively with the design team, Autocad REVIT was used for the key co-ordination areas including plant areas and primary distribution routes.
The school is designed to be highly energy efficient and includes passive design strategies and low carbon technology to minimise energy use. Features include roof mount wind catchers providing ventilation to classrooms, LED lighting, ventilation heat recovery, high performance building management system (BMS) and photovoltaic panels providing electricity.
