City of Westminster College
Client: City of Westminster
Value: £16 million
Rotary Building Services successfully delivered the mechanical and electrical services for the City of Westminster College, the largest Learning Skills Council funded scheme in the UK. This stunning landmark building is regarded as the LSC’s flagship project and acts as a benchmark for future college developments across the UK.
The new campus HQ building at Paddington Green offers brand new, state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities in an inspirational building. At the heart of the scheme is a dynamic inner atrium filled with natural light. This central galleried space acts as the new building’s ‘hub’, a circulation and meeting space, leading to adjacent areas providing academic and practical teaching facilities, an open learning centre, meeting rooms, administrative accommodation and flexible seminar spaces.
Schmidt Hammer Lassen’s design was selected from around 100 entries across Europe for its ‘sustainability, sensitivity to the surrounding urban environment and its inherent understanding of modern educational requirements.’
The redevelopment has created a building that actively engages with its surroundings – voids cut into the building’s mass reinforce the perception of a transparent, community building, contributing to the regeneration of the wider area.
Oasis Acadamy, Oldham
Client: Oldham City Council
Value: £5 million
Client: Willmott Dixon
This iconic three-storey building complete with roof plant areas, incorporates wide-ranging sports facilities, including a stand-alone sports pavilion with a bridge-link to the main building. With a building services value of £5m, local subcontractors benefitted from half of the overall construction spend of £25.5m.
Rotary’s design and build project exceeded the client’s BREEAM 'Good' requirement delivering a building rated BREEAM 'Excellent'. This was achieved through the innovative control of daylight lighting, by using solar thermal hot water, utilising photovoltaic units to produce electrical energy, and installing an integrated building management system (BMS).
The metering and monitoring of all energy use within the academy gives the students a strong sense of ownership in their surroundings. Opened in 2012, Oasis Academy was the first of three new academy schools to be built for Oldham City Council.
Purpose-built for 21st century education with outstanding ICT facilities and resources for the whole community, Oasis Academy includes a fitness suite, 3G sports pitch, skate park and multiuse games area. The academy replaces Kaskenmoor and South Chadderton secondary schools as part of Oldham’s Building Schools for the Future programme.
Oasis Academy, Oldham was committed to working with a range of partners including Oldham Council, Willmott Dixon Construction, The Oldham College and J21, to ensure that apprenticeship opportunities were created for Oldham residents during the construction phase.
Rotary ensured a large amount of product spend within the local community by using local resources and suppliers.
