Manchester Grammar New Junior School

Client: Manchester Grammar School

Architect: Ansell & Bailey

Budget: £2.5m

Completed: 2012

Beswyke and Plessyngton Lodges are excellent examples of truly sustainable buildings with an embedded carbon footprint significantly lower than that of a steel, concrete or masonry building.  Total carbon reduction compared to a traditionally constructed building over 10 years is over 200 tonnes.

The new two-form entry school comprises twelve classrooms, together with ancillary teaching areas, Head’s office, ICT room and staff rooms.  The school 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.  The design includes maximising daylight, passive solar gain, natural ventilation, the use of sustainable materials, daylight dimming lighting, south-facing classrooms and gas-fired condensing boilers.
