1 Publication of Building Information Case Study The Construction Skills Centre Basic description of the project and building. Bury College is a well-established College of Further Education providing accommodation for over 10,000 students and 650 staff. The majority of the College Estate is spread over 3 campuses along Market Street and has seen regular investment and areas of renewal over the last decade. The College is currently making further investment under the heading of Estate Strategy Phase 8 and this has been split across a number of defined Work Packages (WP). The latest WP will begin in January 2012 and involves the construction of a new Construction Skills Centre located adjacent to the existing Prospect Centre and Aspire Centre on the Millennium Campus. The proposal for the Construction Skills Centre will create a new 2 storey teaching facility for the College, providing 1,800m2 of new Brickwork, Plastering and Joinery Workshops along with additional Classrooms and associated WC, Staff Room and Storage Facilities. The development allows the relocation of the current off-site facilities at the Saw Mills, onto the Millennium Campus allowing the consolidation of the College s estate. BREEAM Rating and score BREEAM Excellent (Current score = 72)

2 The key innovative and low-impact design features of the building Health and Wellbeing Day lighting is a pivotal issue with regards to the wellbeing of the building occupants and the layout of the building has been designed to achieve excellent levels of day lighting in the main teaching areas by a combination of sensible plan depths, good fenestration design and roof light provision as required. The levels of glazing and views do bring challenges and as such internal blinds and controls will be designed into the building to ensure user control of daylight. The nature of the Workshop environment and the constraints of the site has led to deep plan accommodation within the Workshop areas, however, daylight provision has been utilised where possible to maximise daylight provision within the site constraints. Due to internal environmental requirements and the nature of the Workshop spaces, the building will be designed with mechanical ventilation to Workshop Areas. Classrooms however have been designed to allow natural ventilation in order to reduce the reliance on energy. The systems to heat the building and provide adequate ventilation through mechanical means and through opening windows will be individually controlled for each space and provide the correct levels of comfort and control. Artificial lighting will provide the required levels of lighting but will be used to supplement day light and have good levels of manual control and smart control which will detect day light and the presence of occupants. Energy In order to reduce the CO 2 emissions from the building, the building envelope and services will be designed to be as efficient as possible. Part of the reduction of energy use comes from an understanding of energy use and use patterns. To accommodate this, the building will have a metering system monitored by a Building Management System which will allow the estates team to record, target and raise energy use concerns to specific areas of building use. The resulting design of the building allows for the relatively heavy construction to freely ventilate during the night/early morning during hotter periods so that day time temperatures are lower and reliance on mechanical cooling is reduced. The heavy construction used throughout the building with block work internal walls to all areas except classrooms, provides a high thermal mass therefore ensuring that heat is maintained within the building fabric. Transport The proximity to Bury s major transport interchange and the town centre make the development an ideal location. Further transport choice opportunities will be introduced by the provision of external cycle facilities directly adjacent to the building. Water Providing potable water is an energy intensive activity and the reduction in its use has been targeted as a sustainability issue. The college will therefore reduce water use by the specification and provision of low water use fittings and controls for all the sanitary installations. Further metering of the water supply and monitoring for leaks will help ensure the efficient use of water whilst external landscaping will be designed to be reliant on external precipitation.

3 Materials The BRE s Green Guide to Specification has been used as a reference point for design and specification of all major building elements. All materials used in major building elements will be responsibly sourced which will ensure that where possible sustainability is embodied into the very fabric of the development. This objective is also to be applied to the buildings insulation, which must have low embodied environmental impact in relation to its high thermal properties. Careful attention will also be paid to the correct specification of materials which are robust and serviceable for their application which reduces cost and materials over the life of a building. Robust building materials have been utilised throughout in order to minimise the maintenance requirements for the life of the building. Waste Production of waste during the building process will be carefully controlled and documented. Whilst reducing waste in construction is important, specific attention should also be paid to reducing waste arising from use of the building. To assist in the college s management of the facility, sufficient space for re-cycling and waste storage areas is incorporated into the design. Land Use and Ecology An ecological assessment has been carried out for the development which defines the proposals as having a low ecological impact. Protection will be provided to areas outside the development which could potentially hold some ecological value which will be done as part of the contractor s good practice in relation to site activities. Pollution Whilst the design of the building services will recognise any contributory factors in relation to pollution and take action to reduce or remove them, external factors such as flood risk, noise levels and light pollution will also be fully addressed. Basic Building Cost - /m 2 Basic building cost 750/m2 Services Costs - /m 2 Services cost 375/m2 External Works - /m 2 External works cost 50/m2 Gross floor area - m 2 Total floor area = 1,800 m 2 Function areas and their size (m 2 ) Function areas = 1,428 m 2 (approx.) Area of circulation (m 2 ) Circulation areas = 228 m2 (approx.)

In order for the building design and the building services to function correctly the building must be commissioned properly and the use of the building must be fully explained for its users. The commissioning of the building will therefore take place over the period of a full year and a simple building user guide will be developed and updated to reflect how the building functions and ensure efficiency. Impacts of the development during construction will be well managed and kept to a minimum which is integral to the design and the development of the brief to date. EWC have registered the site under the Considerate Constructors Scheme and are to achieve a CCS score of at least 32 points. They will also record energy and water consumption on a monthly basis against a target figure and display this in the site office, use best practices to protect the air and water courses, ensure that an ISO14001 Environmental Management System is in place and either produce a sustainability procurement policy or record transport to and from site. EWC will also ensure that all timber used for temporary works will be from a sustainable source.

5 A list of any social or economically sustainable measures achieved/piloted. The key innovative and low-impact design features of the building High Efficiency, Low NOx, Condensing Boilers. Heat Pump air conditioning units. On site Renewable Energy via Photovoltaic panels. BMS controls to all heating, cooling and ventilation systems. Sanitary shut off valves and water flow restrictors to reduce water usage.
