St. John Fisher School

This £13 million redevelopment project features a number of sustainable building techniques.

Two buildings have been constructed from cross-laminated timber panels, resulting in dramatic reductions in construction timescales and costs. The panels are highly insulated and clad in weatherproof, fire-resistant panelling, brickwork and render. The timber comes from sustainable managed forests.

Other sustainable features include ground source heat pumps, solar hot water collectors mounted on the south facing roofs and a wind turbine located at the front of the school. The project includes new and refurbished classrooms, a library; sports hall and all-weather pitch along with music, drama, and ICT rooms.
