Durability is probably the key component in a design brief for an educational establishment be it a school or a university. Nowhere else can services be exposed to the type of continuous and sustained assault as here!

That said, the need for a reasonable level of comfort, compliance with a plethora of regulations and a need for sustainability and energy conservation are no less mandatory than in any other modern building.

Applied Energy has been responsible for a number educational projects including new-build designs for all types of school building together with associated energy studies and conservation measures, all resulting in improved energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions.
