Rockwood Academy is a major school expansion project helping the campus to increase in size to 1,050 students by 2020. It will include the construction of a new teaching block featuring 14 new classrooms, plus a state-of-the-art library, specialist dance studio and improved science labs. The teaching block will act as the new gateway to the school.
The project is due for completion in Autumn 2020.
Being safe is of paramount importance to all of us at Morgan Sindall Construction. We see it as critical that our people, and those who are affected by our activities, benefit from an incident free environment. We operate a 100% Safe policy on all our projects where we aim to exceed legal safety requirements.
Throughout the project our teams will be reducing, reusing and recycling across all materials, whilst any waste will be accurately segregated at source. Green travel plans have been created for staff and a cycle to work scheme is also in place. The team has completed an ecology assessment and further bat and bird surveys to ensure we do not disturb any wildlife habitats. We will be using timber Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which are a renewable resource, and Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDs) to reduce flood risk.
The new building will have solar panels on the roof and the design has been optimised for natural lighting. In addition, there are air source heat pumps to provide heating and cooling thus providing optimum learning conditions.
