Project Background

The new sports and performing arts centre, which also included a new Sixth Form block, has dramatically improved the sports and general facilities available at the school for students and teaching staff.

J Tomlinson’s solution involved the design and installation of all associated mechanical and electrical building services, while also carrying out the bespoke installation of energy efficiency technologies in line with Passivhaus standards. These included a wood pellet biomass boiler and heating system, LED lighting, a large array of Solar PV, rainwater harvesting system and a new building management system. The project qualified for the Government RHI and FIT schemes providing long term benefits to the school.
