The Ashburton Learning Village
The Ashburton Learning Village is a flagship development for the Government’s initiative for Public-Private Funding Partnerships. The facility has been noted for its innovative design and energy efficient features and has been praised by the former RIBA President George Ferguson who claimed that it “sets a new design standard for schools”. It has since become a contender for this years Biennale Award for Best New Building.
The contribution of Component Developments was a number of drainage channels situation in shower areas. Supplied to site in one week to meet the requirements of the contractor’s programme, the channels used two trapped outlets per system positioned to suit existing pipe-work. Standards utilised commonly in schools also include out type 4200 and 4300 access covers and surface protection.
