PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BWB supported the planning submission in 2020 providing transport planning, plus noise and vibration services.

Kings Heath Boys School was a 5-form entry (FE) senior school operating school years 7-11, with approximately 600 pupils in attendance. The development proposal include an extension to the existing school to provide facilities for intake of additional pupils to become a 7 form entry.

BWB provided a transport statement and a Noise & Vibration assessment to demonstrate that the scheme impact of the proposals wouldn’t be significant.

Following planning consent BWB are now providing building acoustic design input into the scheme to provide students with the optimum learning environment.

The proposed building layout had to be amended to accommodate the vehicular access of a fire appliance to accord with regulations.

We undertook a value engineering exercise for the buildings, whilst still maintaining the relevant standard criteria for the building materials.
