RSA were commissioned by Willmott Dixon in January 2012 to design an extension to Ashcombe Children’s Centre in Weston Super Mare.
Using a limited budget and tight programme, RSA designed a workable extension which utilises the efficiency of off-site SIPS construction (Structurally Integrated Panels) to minimise the construction time on site. A Key stage 2 Reception class has been extended by approximately 150 sqm to incorporate new learning facilities, storage, refurbished office and outdoor learning area.
The building exceeds Building Control U-Values and was completed on site in August 2012.
Client – North Somerset Council
Cost – £0.5 million
Total Floor Area - 140 sqm
