North Wales LABC Excellence Awards 2011: County Winner: Best Educational Building

During the project, Wynne Construction adopted the principles of site waste management and participated in the WRAP and Considerate Constructors Schemes achieving an excellent score of 34.5 points (86%) in the CCS Monitor's Site Report.

A number of key sustainability features are incorporated into the building to include high thermal resistance of the building fabric, using high levels of insulation to reduce heat loss during winter and the need for cooling during the summer; energy efficient services, with integrated controls; passive ventilation and cooling; use of low water demand sanitary ware, supplemented by collection of the rainwater, which is used to flush the WC and urinals; solar thermal panels used to heat the hot water; and photovoltaic cells to produce electricity.

A number of measures were also taken to mitigate any ecological impact such as ecological surveys to establish the value of the site, prevention for disturbing the wildlife and on completion natural planting was introduced to ensure that there was no overall negative impact of the ecology of the site.

The project involved an extensive refurbishment of the Rhyl Campus.
