The Future of Education is in a Sustainable Timber Building

Cabinco are delighted to be invited back to Ockendon Academy school to create their newest Sustainable Building – the Studio School.  This is just 6 months after completion of their new Teaching block which Cabinco completed in July 2012.

The new Studio School offers a pioneering new approach to education which will bridge the gap between academic life and the world of employment.  The school have established relationships with local employers offering vocational opportunities to students alongside educational qualifications.  Those students completing their education at a studio school will be leaving school as employment ready applicants for local business and industry.

The new sustainable building will be constructed from solid laminated log walling and Siberian Larch Cladding to match in with the existing Timber Teaching Block.  The same high levels of insulation and low energy heating and lighting will be used and it is expected that the building will achieve Breeam “Very Good” rating.

Cabinco are already on site and foundations are underway.  Construction begins in just one week
