New ‘Early Years’ Centre

Accessible Washroom

The extensions have pitched roofs and are faced with white render and cedar boarding.  The design for the extensions and alterations to the school include the maximisation of natural lighting, minimisation of solar glare, increased ventilation, new dual flush toilets, low water usage taps, energy efficiency and sustainable drainage.

The existing main vehicular access has been converted into the main pedestrian access, with a new vehicular access to the side of the school with additional parking spaces.
