Awards for Ruskin School of Art
November 04th, 2016
CBG are pleased to announce that Spratley Studio and Kingerlee Ltd have received an Oxford Preservation Trust Award for their work at The Ruskin School of Art.
CBG were responsible for providing the energy and ventilation strategy for the new £4M building. The mechanical services design has helped achieve a reduction in CO2 of 32% in comparison with the latest building regulations (Part L 2013). This was achieved through use of innovations such as a ‘fabric first’ approach which, when coupled with low air tightness, has reduced the heating demand whilst also limiting the risk of Summer time over-heating. The building also has solar voltaic panels to help meet the electrical demand.Back to News & Knowledge
