St Luke’s Primary School in Wolverhampton has gained a BREEAM excellent rating, making it one of the most sustainable educational facilities in Britain

The £5.9m building in Blakenhall, was designed by Architype. Price and Myers was sustainability consultant. Architype claims the form and section of the building reduce energy consumption by maximising natural light, as well as using a passive ventilation system and carefully controlling solar gain.

Every classroom is cross-ventilated with a combination of manual low-level windows and automatic clerestorey windows linked to the building management system.
