Crymych C.P. School Ext & ICC
The project will raise an awareness of sustainability issues amongst designers, contractors, pupils, staff, parents and community visitors with good potential for 'cross-over' replication of the ideas in the residential sector by environmentally aware visitors. This will be achieved by installing a rainwater harvesting system to provide water to WC cisterns, 380 m2 of flax natural fibre roof insulation over the separately identifiable ICC area, and by the installation of a carbon neutral biomass wood pellet fuelled heating system. The project builds upon the previous environmentally aware 'Preseli Community Biomass Scheme’, which attracted SDF funding and incorporates new ideas of rainwater harvesting and flax natural fibre insulation at this site. The installations will serve as a useful teaching aid for environmental areas of the national curriculum and also interpretive display boards will be provided detailing the sustainable technology elements incorporated within the building and information about aspects of the design that we now consider as standard such as low energy/intelligent lighting and natural ventilation.
