The Downs National School

This project, part of a pilot programme to be extended across many other primary and secondary schools in the future, comprised of two goals — retrofit and extend, according to nZEB standards.

The recently completed project consisted of a low-energy retrofit of the existing 3-classroom school (254msq), and the construction of an adjoining single storey 4-classroom extension to the existing school (441msq).

The existing school building which consisted of a three classroom Boyd Barrett School dating from 1934, with small extensions carried out in 1960, transformed into a top-rated energy-efficient nZEB class building.
