Rogiet Primary School, Monmouthshire
As part of the Spring Green 2011 programme at The Architecture Centre, Bristol, White Design’s Nick James and Till Scherer are presenting talks on two recently completed award-winning education projects: John Ferneley College in Leicestershire and Rogiet Primary School in Monmouthshire.
The Spring Green programme of exhibitions and events celebrates and showcases sustainable innovation in the built environment and this year considers the challenges in creating sustainable schools, drawing on examples from around the world. A topical and engaging programme, Spring Green 2011 will address some of the key concerns for those designing, building, managing and maintaining our schools - as well as those who teach and learn in them.
The talk on Rogiet Primary School is on Thursday 10th March, with John Ferneley College on Wednesday 30th March; both events begin at 18.30h. Tickets cost £5 (£3 concessions) and can be booked by calling The Architecture Centre on 0117 922 1540. Running from early March to mid-June, further details of the full Spring Green programme will be available shortly on The Architecture Centre’s website www.architecturecentre.co.uk/
Rogiet Primary School gained the highest on-completion BREEAM score in the UK in 2010, with the pupils, teachers and parents fully engaged throughout the development. John Fernely College in Leicestershire has been a catalyst for research into Embodied Carbon analysis which White Design is now developing for wider use on other projects.
