Judges’ comments

The Paxman Academy makes great optimisation of an existing school to enhance occupant comfort in Colchester as a functional new six form and 900 place secondary school. Architectural Technology was demonstrated through a fine level of details and use of BIM during the design phase to run clash detection simulations at the design stage. This enabled a reduction in clash and queries onsite. Sustainable design principles which integrated well with the surroundings. Materials selected will perform well and make it robust for future use.
