Kershaw Well Educated with Latest Project Win

April 25 2014

Cambridge-based building services company, Kershaw Mechanical Services, continue to attract top marks in the education sector, having recently landed a circa, £4m project to install full Mechanical & Electrical building services into the new Trumpington Community College.  Located on the Clay Farm development, just four miles south of Cambridge city centre, the college will have a footprint of 8,000m² and cater for 750 pupils.  It will be the first new build secondary school in Cambridge for more than 50 years.

Designed by Avanti Architects, the building’s interiors will showcase the college’s specialism of science and provide flexible classrooms around a central atrium, together with a community sports centre including a main hall and fitness suite, and playing fields which will be open to the public.

The design also reflects the college’s commitment to sustainability, and will enable students to see sustainability at work in the fabric of the building as well as taking related knowledge from the classroom out into the real world.

Working for main contractor Morgan Sindall, the M&E elements to be installed by the Kershaw team include a Breathing Building natural ventilation system, a ground source heat pump providing heating and cooling, a gas-fired plant room, full sprinkler system, all power including intelligent lighting, access control and CCTV.

Ian Greenstock, Sales Director for Kershaw Mechanical Services said “We are delighted to be working with Morgan Sindall on this new college – it’s targeted to achieve a BREEAM rating of excellent, and is destined to be a fantastic shared resource for both the school and the growing local community on the Clay Farm, Cambridge development.”
