Ysgol Cybi: Holyhead

Client Anglesey County Council
Contract Value £9m
Architect Lovelock Mitchell Associates
Length of Contract 78 Weeks
BREEAM Predicted Excellent

Wynne Construction has been appointed by Anglesey County Council to design and build a new primary school, situated at the existing Ysgol Cybi site in Holyhead. The project includes a new two-storey development and the refurbishment of the existing listed Cybi building.

The new £9m school, will accommodate 540 pupils with 70 nursery pupils and benefit from the latest facilities and resources to include modern and well equipped classrooms and suitable outdoor areas for play and learning. The project is due to be completed by Spring 2017 and has been part funded by the Welsh Government through the 21st Century Schools Programme

The school is one of the first in North Wales to adopt Building Information Modelling (BIM) to the full level 2 standard, which allows designers and constructors to work collaboratively to streamline and accurately model a construction project before work starts on site.

The school is to be constructed to BREEAM Excellent standards. BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building's environmental performance.

A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance, which are set against established benchmarks, to evaluate a building's specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes.

This project has adopted several approaches to achieving the score of Excellent and to construct a very energy efficient building, including:
