ousedale secondary school

The proposed facility provides a laboratory, ICT Room, Greenhouse, dedicated external planting & studies areas, and incorporates numerous renewable/’Green’ technologies - all essential for the delivery of the new diploma. The design solution was developed in association with the National Energy Foundation to ensure that the new facility is as sustainable as possible within the cost parameters of the Council’s budget.

Both the School and Design Team felt it extremely important that the new land based diploma facility had its own individual identity.

In terms of sustainability, the goal of the Ousedale Land Based Diploma facility project was to design the ‘Greenest’ possible building within the parameters of the Councils available construction budget, thus allowing the School to use the building itself as an educational tool to teach students about the impact of construction on the environment, renewable technologies, thermal insulation, carbon emissions, etc
