Trumpington Community College
From the outset of the design process, the Trumpington Community College project was driven by an ambitious sustainability agenda.
Max Fordham carried out environmental engineering and acoustic design, along with BREEAM consultancy. Our acoustic design work included auralisation modelling to test and demonstrate the likely acoustic conditions under different learning scenarios.
The atrium affords exceptional daylighting, using large areas of rooflights. Glazed internal screens allow borrowed daylight deep into the rear classrooms.
The project includes a Soft Landings programme, post occupancy evaluation and monitoring of the energy and water use; all essential to demonstrate good, in-use building performance.
The project achieved a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating at design stage.
