Construction progresses at first Welsh Passivhaus School

Construction is progressing well on site, with the timber roof recently being completed at Burry Port Primary. The scheme  is on target to become the first Passivhaus School in Wales. 

The £3.8 million school will provide accommodate 210 pupils and a 30-place nursery. The new junior block will be clad in vertical timber and the pitched roof to the new junior block will be zinc standing seam.

Designed by PHT Patron members Architype and built by local contractors WRW; Completion is expected September 2015.

The school improvements form part of Carmarthenshire County Council’s Modernising Education Programme which is a multi million pound investment in school buildings. The Welsh Government is providing 50% of the funding.

It is great to see progress being made on this building, which will provide a first class sustainable home for pupils and staff. This is certainly an innovative development which is set to be the first of its kind in Wales.

Cllr Keith Davies, Education executive board member.
