The building of Sky Primary and Eden Project Nursery is now underway

Sky Primary and Eden Project Nursery in West Carclaze, will be delivered using Modern Methods of Construction with the first modules arriving on site in Autumn 2024. Sustainable features are embedded throughout, with air source heat pumps providing heating to the building and PV panels and windcatchers on the roof, in line with the energy strategy for the school.

87% of the new two-storey primary school building will be manufactured at REDS10’s facility in Driffield before being transported to West Carclaze to be assembled on site. This maximises productivity, quality and control and minimises disruption.

Sense of Space has worked with Reds10 and Kernow Learning to produce a design which will integrate with the wider West Carclaze Garden Village development using a combination of local and contemporary materials.

                                        The new school will be clad in local stone at the lower level with                                                                                                          hard-wearing fibre cement panels and metal cladding above.

The building will be complemented by soft planting across the site, with areas of short and long grasses, native tree planting and a dedicated habitat area for study.

Informal hard playground space will facilitate the link between the key outdoor play areas and the internal classroom layout. A fenced Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and grass playing field are enclosed by a soft landscape buffer around the perimeter of the site with tree planting to provide shade, shelter, and interest throughout the year.

The new school will be located at the heart of the Carclaze Garden village centre with direct access from the adjoining neighbourhood facilities, supporting sustainable transport via a network of footpaths and cycleways.

Groundworks (roads, paths, foundations and drainage), for Sky Primary and Eden Project Nursery begin on site in Spring 2024, with the first modules arriving on site in Autumn 2024.
