Colman Junior School | ECO POD DESIGN
Colman Junior School

Colman Junior School based in Norwich were in need of a multi functional building, predominantly for extra class space, but also for teacher training meetings, which occasionally needed accommodating.

Our eco credentials were high on Colman Junior School’s list and with this in mind we designed a building to achieve an A+ EPC.  This effectively has a zero carbon impact on the environment.  The 7KW Solar PV we installed on the roof of the pod not only reduces the school’s energy bills, but also generates income back to them.

At the rear of the classroom we installed a Rainwater Harvesting system which collects rain water from the roof and is then used to flush the toilets.  This again will drastically reduce the costs on the school’s water bill.

The eco classroom benefits from Aluminium Bi-Folds doors that can be fully opened to let the outside blend into the pod during the warm summer months.

We chose a vibrant green and yellow facia capping which really suited the wooded aspect where the pod is located.
