Charlton Academy principally accommodates a new build secondary school, with a data centre servicing the local education network positioned within the academy. BWB undertook concept through to detailed design of the mechanical and electrical engineering services, fully co-ordinated using Revit software in a BIM environment.
The building engineering systems are arranged to suit this joint facility in the most 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.
