St Dennis Nursery

South West Community Builds were appointed as to design and apply for grant funding  for this amazing project to develop a new 3 classroom nursery for St Dennis Primary Academy. It has now been passed to a main contractor after South West Community Builds managed to secure all of the funding to deliver the build.

Design Brief/Outline of the Project:

The proposal is to remove the existing Portakabin (2 classroom) and replace it with a timber framed building incorporating: –

  • 3 classrooms
  • Kitchen area just off one classroom
  • Baby changing facilities
  • Toilets – Adults, disabled, 6 junior toilets
  • Storage for each classroom
  • Cleaning cupboard/services
  • Office/staff workbase
  • Outdoor play areas
  • Incorporate energy & water reducing technologies,
  • PV, rainwater harvesting, high U value structure, air source and underfloor heating
