Welsh BREEAM Outstanding Primary School Completes

Welsh BREEAM Outstanding Primary School Completes

Still on track as one of the first BREEAM Outstanding schools in Wales, Ysgol Ffwrnes has completed ahead of schedule with staff and pupils moving in over the next few days.

Ysgol Ffwrnes is a new build 472 pupils combined nursery and primary Welsh medium school in the Furnace area of Llanelli. In addition to teaching space facilities include a badminton hall to Sport England standards and a flood lit multi use games area (MUGA).

Sustainability has been a key consideration in the design, 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 design rating of Outstanding.

All these factors create a truly sustainable school in social, economic and environmental terms. The most important part of that is the creation of a learning environment that the pupils, staff, parents and the community all enjoy using.

Every member of the team, including Austin-Smith:Lord, WRW, CB3 Consult, SABA Consult and Melin, worked collaboratively resulting in the delivery of the school ahead of schedule.

The team is delighted that the school is set to be one of the first BREEAM Outstanding primary schools  in Wales.
