Award Winning Project for Manchester Grammar School

Manchester Grammar School New Junior School

The new Manchester Grammar School Junior School, Beswyke Lodge, opened its doors to pupils for the first time in September 2008. It is an excellent example of a truly sustainable building with an embedded carbon footprint significantly lower than that of a steel, concrete or masonary building. Total carbon reduction compared to a traditionally constructed building over 10 years is 68 Tonnes.

MGS, who appointed S I Sealy to act as Project Managers, Contract Administrators and M&E Designers were keen to ensure that the new school was environmentally sustainable, constructed to a budget and critically, as a new venture, be completed on time.

The new one form entry school comprises five classrooms, together with ancillary teaching areas, heads office, ICT room and staff rooms.

The building has proved a great success in achieving its aims, to provide a secure and friendly environment, and an energy efficient solution with a sustainable design.
