Hybrid School Passive House Extension

Lowfield Timber Frames has recently erected a timber frame for an extension to Ysgol Gymraeg y Trallwng. Working with Wynne Construction on behalf of Powys County Council. The £7m development in Welshpool will see a new 150-student school constructed on site, while also incorporating the historic Ysgol Maesydre building. This will merge a primary school’s rich heritage with modern design principles.
The Grade II-listed building will be refurbished as part of the construction to accommodate early years and community facilities, with existing features of the building retained and protected. The extension, which is to be built to achieve Passive House (Passivhaus) accreditation and ensure a sustainable, low energy usage building. Additional structural repairs include window refurbishment and roof coverings.

The major benefit of a passive house build is the reduced energy consumption during the operating life of the structure, leading to reduced energy costs and heating bills and lower CO2 for the planet. Read more on 'Passive House'
