The new state of the art STEM centre includes a fully equipped ‘superlab’ providing working laboratory space for up to 96 students at a time. Folding partitions between adjacent classrooms, allows classes to be joined up into large open-plan spaces for exams or assemblies. The design of the solid timber and straw bale fabric and structure have been integrated to become part of the teaching environment. Exposed structural and cladding elements demonstrate to the students how the structure is working, and a user friendly Building Management System (BMS) allows users to control how the building operates.
