WCN Editorial Team 26 Nov 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The Northern Home Counties team of Morgan Sindall Construction has been selected as a preferred bidder to deliver a £36m low-carbon secondary school in Aylesbury for Buckinghamshire Council in the UK.

The new school is located within Kingsbrook housing development, where Morgan Sindall Construction is currently building Kingsbrook View Primary Academy.

The two school projects are being delivered under the Southern Construction Framework (SCF), a quality-managed collaborative construction framework for public bodies.

The project will feature a new two and three storeys 900 place secondary school, with 180 post-16 places.

The school will also include a 32 place Special Educational Needs (SEN) unit to serve the Kingsbrook community. It will also include the main hall, sports centre and external sports areas, which are available for hire outside of school hours.

The 10, 000ft² low-carbon school will include several features to maximise efficiency and minimise wastage to improve sustainability.

The project will be built using the latest construction methods, including Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) to improve the building’s thermal performance and improve air tightness.

Construction on the project is scheduled to commence in spring 2021. The school is expected to open in time for the 2022 academic year.

Morgan Sindall Construction Northern Home Counties area director David Rowsell said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our strong partnership with our valued and longstanding client Buckinghamshire Council and procurement partners at the Southern Construction Framework following our appointment as preferred bidder on this key development.

“Kingsbrook Secondary School will enhance the educational provision available for this fast-growing community and create a high quality, energy-efficient building, in line with Buckinghamshire Council’s commitment to achieving zero carbon by 2050.”
