Merstham Park School - McAvoy
The 6,850m2 Department for Education (DfE) Merstham Park School is a purpose-designed 2-3 storey facility providing 900 pupils aged 11-16 years with high-quality classrooms, play space, a dance studio, and an all-weather sports pitch. The pioneering ‘Low Carbon Pathfinder’ project minimises energy usage by implementing the ‘Be Lean, Be Clean, Be Green’ energy hierarchy which focuses on reducing the demand for energy at source through passive measures before considering efficient systems and renewable technology. The school – located within a green-belt zone – is run predominantly by electricity, and incorporates efficient heating and cooling systems, as well as roof-mounted solar panels.
