St Bernadette's eco-friendly school - Scotland

Eco-friendly St Bernadette’s Primary School in Antonshill, near Stenhousemuir opened its doors for the first time this month. The energy-efficient building design was the work of Falkirk Council Architects with the construction delivered by Kier Scotland. Featuring solar-paneled water heating, recycled newspaper insulation and many other green initiatives, the new school is set to meet BREEAM’s Very Good sustainability objectives.

A glass-roofed central atrium spanning 85 metres in length forms the backbone of the building and provides a versatile activity space. It also serves to maximize the natural use of light and its raised floor houses the school’s sprinkler network, hot and cold water supplies and electric and data cabling. Council architects needed an easy and reliable solution to accessing these essential services for the lifetime of the building and Howe Green’s 7500 Series aluminium access covers were chosen because of their excellent quality and the firm’s reputation for first class service support.

A. Andrews & Sons installed 79 of Howe Green’s 7500 Series aluminium access panels to cover a continuous run of 75 metres of floor space with additional multipart units also fitted onto adjoining legs. Capable of tolerating heavy pedestrian traffic, the access covers are designed to be in-filled with a floor finish to match the surrounding area, which in this case was an industrial grade carpet. For optimal hygiene, the covers are double sealed to ensure that no dirt or grease can penetrate them and they are also resistant to rust and corrosion. Offered in a range of sizes to meet the needs of different applications, 7500 Series access covers have a standard depth of 75mm with a minimal show-edge for a seamless look.

St Bernadette’s cost £7.1m in total and the new school serves over 10,000 households in the Larbert, Stenhousemuir, Torwood, Carron and Carronshore areas. It opened its doors for the first time this term providing the area with a progressive learning environment for up to 217 primary and 80 nursery children.
