Telford Co-Operative Academy principally accommodates a secondary school, with changing rooms for use by the adjacent tennis centre incorporated into the school building. A data centre is provided which is a hub for the district's data services.
BWB undertook concept through to detailed design of the mechanical and electrical engineering services using Revit software in a BIM environment. The building engineering systems are arranged to suit the academy facility in an energy and cost conscious manner whilst providing a suitable level of autonomy between the different functions.
Tight ceiling void space made the co-ordination of services challenging. The use of Revit software assisted the 3D co-ordination and enabled early resolution of service distribution routes.
