Sunesis Schools - The Bay

A Restricted Site Calls For A Roof Top Playground For Isle Of Wight School

The Isle of Wight School Regeneration scheme consists of the construction of new primary schools and the refurbishment of other schools on the isle of wight as part of a project to update the education facilities on the island.

Tully De'Ath are working with Willmott Dixon and Hunter and Partners Architects on The Bay Church of England School on the Isle of Wight.

Based on the Sunesis 'Dewey' model it has an efficient footprint ideally suited to restricted sites. The efficient use of space in this instance includes a rooftop playground.

The Bay will be a two form entry school and should be completed within a year due to the fast build time associated with the Dewey Prototype. This compares with a previous build time of between 18 and 24 months from the initial planning and procurement stage.

As well as working on the foundations and oversite for this and other Sunesis schools Tully De'Ath are also involved in the development of the prototype 'Dewey' school design for Wilmott Dixon.

The structural design is provided within a BIM framework through the close integration of the Design Team and the use of AutoDesk Revit.

The civil engineering on the project is also being provided by Tully De'Ath. As well as the substructure and infrastructure design for the school we also provided a Flood Risk Assessment.
