This project involved the redevelopment of the existing St Thomas School site to provide new school facilities with four levels of student accommodation above.

The classrooms are naturally ventilated via a perimeter heating unit in the floor and the radiators and trench heating are fed from energy saving condensing boilers, all controlled through a trend BMS.  An A/C variant refrigerant flow system was also installed.

The building consists of a reinforced concrete frame designed to reflect acoustic criteria and separation between the school and residential occupiers.
