Timber Classroom Block for Essex Academy

The Ockendon Academy

800sqm Machine Profile log, 7 Class, sustainable classroom block for an academy school in Essex.  We were a part of the design team working with the JTS Partnership (Chartered Surveyors) who dealt with initial planning and initial client brief. Cabinco turned the initial design into a set of manufacturing drawings and liased with Heating and Lighting engineers to secure the best Low Energy systems which met both client and Breeam requirements.  This site was on a green belt location and the client had some difficulty achieving planning.  The sustainable nature of the build system and the low impact of the build process were crucial to both client and planning.

How delivered successfully

We worked with the JTS Partnership at a very early stage to ensure that their design concept was matched into the build system we were offering.  JTS and Ockendon Academy had already overcome several difficulties in design and funding and Cabinco now had to ensure that the delivered building met the criteria that funders and planners had set for sustainability, Breeam “very good” rating, fast installation. Working closely with the architect and client through weekly progress meetings and our existing close relationship with the sub-contract team the project was supervised and kept on schedule.
