Ysgol Ffwrnes

Austin-Smith:Lord undertook the role of Executive Architect in the development of a new BREEAM Outstanding 472 pupil combined Nursery and Primary Welsh medium School in the Furnace area of Llanelli.

The school’s imaginative design provides a variety of stimulating learning spaces. Arranged over two stories the design maximises the views to the nearby coastline whilst minimising the building footprint.

Courtyards, covered classrooms and a roof terrace have immediate links to classrooms and the ecologically rich woodland setting.

Sustainability was a key consideration, with the aim of achieving a highly sustainable development. There are two different but connected aspects to this: a zero carbon aspiration and a BREEAM rating of Outstanding, making it one of the first BREEAM Outstanding Primary Schools in Wales, and the first to achieve BREEAM Outstanding at design stage.

We have an excellent working relationship with A-S:L which commenced at Ysgol Ffwrness. From an early stage we were impressed by the way in which A-S:L as a business and its staff conducted themselves. as a result of our experience and due to the confidence we have in them to deliver a project which will surpass expectation, we have since worked with A-S:L on numerous bids and projects under a contractor led D&B arrangement.
