Green Planet Design Engineers assisted with the MEP design of Nightingale School in Wandsworth.
The works consisted of a 470m2 single storey new build extension to a community school; specially designed for boys with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties between the ages of 5 and 19 years.
The location of the school is classified as MOL (Metroplitan Open Land) and is home to an active educational facility in the form of a livestock farm. The use of sustainable materials was an important part of the design which needed to take in to account the MOL status of the site.
