West Buckland School
West Buckland School is located in the South West of England, Rundell Associates were appointed to create a new Art, Design and Theatre building for the school.
The building has a prefabricated structural frame, consisting of cross-laminated spruce panels and solid glulam beams and is clad in locally-sourced, natural stone and Siberian Larch boards.
We designed and detailed Raico composite timber/ aluminium curtain walling based on the European Glulam beams with inserted 75Di doors. Floor to ceiling glass offers exceptional solar control and specific barrier loads. The Building Management System maximises the use of the passive systems and a roof top sunlight sensor modulates the internal fluorescent lighting levels to maintain the required luminance levels for each room whilst minimising energy use.
