Hackney Design Awards 2012

Hackney Council and The Learning Trust have nominated our project at Lauriston Primary School for the Hackney Design Awards 2012.   The project was the phased capital redevelopment of an existing occupied 1 form entry primary school to provide a new 2 form entry school with nursery and reception classes.  Many sustainable features were built into the design including the use of a cross laminated timber frame to bring both speed and sustainability.  This efficient system cuts down on waste and reduces the embodied carbon of buildings.  The project also won the “Excellence in Design for Teaching & Learning” at the British Council for School Environments awards 2011.
