Brentwood SEN School, Manchester
Brentwood School was constructed to cater for the growing demand of special needs pupils. Clancy provided Civil, Structural, GeoEnvironmental and CDM services. Complex building geometry was modelled in Revit. Clancy developed SUDS drainage solution.
A Clancy GeoEnvironmental team were involved early on in the project in carrying out site investigations and associated Site Investigation Reporting. A Clancy Civil, Structural team were then involved in the design and detail of the building foundations, drainage, external works, and superstructure.
The superstructure is of steel framed construction with masonry walling. A specialist pool designer was engaged to design and install a £1M hydrotherapy pool and Clancy were engaged in an overseeing role in checking the pool design calculations and carrying out site inspections relating to the pool construction. Clancy were also engaged as Planning Supervisor ensuring the project met with the requirements of the Construction Design Management Regulations.
Clancy designed the superstructure using Fastrak Building Modeller. The building design was then imported into Revit and all drawings were generated in this format. The Revit platform allowed all elements of the design to be fully 3D coordinated.
