S I Sealy providing engineering design for Extraspace Solutions
Extraspace Solutions is a leading provider of modular and prefabricated buildings for a broad spectrum of sectors in the UK and Ireland.
Extraspace has been awarded a contract for six school extensions for Hertfordshire County Council, which will start on site in April and are due to complete in September 2013. S I Sealy will provide the building services engineering designs for these extensions.
Two of the extensions are two storey and will provide six new classrooms each; and the other four will provide between two and four classrooms each. Each of the extensions includes a toilet block and independent boilers.
Four of the extensions will include cutting-edge “Breathing Buildings” technology. This technology, which was developed by a University of Cambridge spin-out company, uses highly sustainable fan assisted natural ventilation with heat recovery techniques. Use of this technology will satisfy the guidance on providing ventilation and avoiding overheating in school buildings – BB101.
