Passivhaus school opens in West London

Passivhaus school opens in West London

One of the country’s very few Passivhaus-designed schools is up and running. The New Ark project at St Benedict’s Junior, Ealing, West London has been designed by van Heyningen and Haward Architects and is the second for St Benedict’s, following on from the 6th Form & ADT which completed in 2015.

The New Ark is a super-sustainable, innovative, educational building and one of only a handful of schools in the UK built to the Passivhaus standard.

Passivhaus buildings like the New Ark are extremely airtight, super-insulated and can be up to 96% more energy efficient than older school buildings. Air quality and temperature are maintained by using heat recovery ventilation, which differs from conventional heating systems because fresh air from outside passes through a heat exchanger. This improves the air quality inside, maintaining good oxygen levels to help staff and pupils stay alert.

St Benedict’s Headmaster, Andrew Johnson, said: “The opening of our new Junior School is another very exciting landmark in St Benedict’s history. The new classroom spaces are inspiring places for our youngest pupils to learn, providing the best possible start to their education here.”
