Eagle House School

Client: Wellington College

Architect: HJ Stribling and Partners

BREEAM: Very Good

Eagle House Pre-Prep School is part of Wellington College and we were appointed as sustainability advisors and M&E engineers for a new sports hall and performing arts centre including a 250-seat auditorium.

Sustainability was a key part of the client brief with a Very Good BREEAM rating required, as well as cutting COemissions by at least 20% in order to meet Bracknell Forest planning requirements. The building has been super-insulated with U-values less than 50% of those permitted under Building Regulations. The sports hall and the auditorium are both naturally ventilated and a biomass boiler helps to further reduce CO2 emissions and meet the requirement for on-site renewable energy.
