Meadway Special Educational Needs School
The project developers wanted the Meadway SEN School to be a showcase for the UK Government vision for sustainable construction. The low temperatures needed by underfloor systems result in real efficiency, reducing energy consumption by at least 30%. This sustainable solution was also crucial in helping the building achieve a BREEAM excellent rating. Wavin’s UK surface heating and cooling specialist subsidiary Warmafloor provided the solution.
Intelligent control makes it easy to adjust the temperature for maximum comfort. This is especially important in a school: children can’t concentrate in overheated classrooms.
We wanted as many cutting edge sustainable initiatives as possible.Derrick Pope , Director of Pope Consulting
Derrick Pope, Director of Pope Consulting, who specified Warmafloor on this project, explains the choice, “We wanted as many cutting edge sustainable initiatives as possible. We aimed for a BREEAM excellent rating and the Warmafloor heating and cooling systems on the ground, first and second floors helped us achieve this goal.”
Mike Lamb, Managing Director of Warmafloor said, “For us, sustainable development means a reduction in CO2 emissions, more efficient use of resources and increased consideration for people’s wellbeing: for Meadway School we delivered exactly that.”
