Westborough School

This award-winning development in Westcliff-on-sea, Essex involved a major refurbishment of the school’s main Edwardian school buildings and adding a covered walkway, vastly improving circulation and the overall school environment. The project reduced carbon emissions by 90% in the school’s renovated areas, introducing a series of subtle changes that could be easily applied to a large number of existing school buildings across the country, not only saving a vast amount of energy but also providing the ability to be used as an educational resource.
