We are so pleased that our Paxman Academy project has been commended in CIAT’s Award for Excellence in Architectural Technology category in the 2020 AT Awards.
It was a pleasure to work with Barnes Construction to deliver this fantastic project for Essex County Council. Being recognised in the CIAT Awards is a huge achievement and we’re incredibly proud of the entire project team.
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.
