SusCon3The SusCon (Sustainable Construction) Academy based in Dartford, Kent was mainly an engineered timber based project. We were responsible for the design, manufacture, supply & fit of all timber based elements including, a glulam frame, insulated wall panels, roof trusses and ‘brise soleil’ (larch sun shades spanning across a glulam frame fixed externally to the building.)

 

The building claimed an 88.85% score following a BREEAM Education 2008 design stage assessment which is believed to be the 'highest score ever achieved for an education building'. Backed by Dartford Borough Council, ProLogis and North West Kent College, the 2,700m2 SusCon academy unsurprisingly netted a BREEAM ‘outstanding’ rating as well.
