Architect's completed £22m project includes green sedum roofs, permeable paving and natural ventilation

The official opening for Ruislip High School in north west London by architect Scott Brownrigg included a fly past of the RAF’s The Royal Squadron, which is based nearby. The £22m project includes teaching ‘barns’ which are attached to a central three-storey entrance and hub.

Sustainable features include sedum grass roofs and permeable paving within the local flood pain. Special window ventilation also allows classes to operate with the windows closed, ensuring external noise is minimised. Automatic opening vents cool the building at night.

The engineer for the scheme was Scott Wilson and contractor was Miller Construction.
