EDUCATION: “HART” Science, Technology & Language Building

The Gregg School, Southampton


Full mechanical fit out





The Brief

The Gregg School is a much sought after co-educational independent day school in Southampton catering for approximately 320 students. Ensuring that students benefit from the latest in technological advancements, the state-of-the-art Hart teaching facility was commissioned by the school to further enhance the educational experience and build on the school’s continued success.

Our Response

Complying with Building Bulletin issue 101, DEWCO designed and installed a passive Tek natural ventilation system combining low level acoustic intake units with roof mounted extraction turrets to enable a passive flow of air through the building. The intake units also contained a low temperature hot water heating coil to provide space heating to the building.

Science classrooms were fitted out with DUOMO emergency gas controls, including touch panels to shut off gas and water supplies to each individual room.

Toilet facilities, including accessible disabled toilets, were supplied and installed with high quality vanity units, sanitary ware and IPS panels.

DEWCO supplied a building management system (BMS) to control all heating and ventilation systems centred around a comprehensive plantroom. All installations were fully tested and commissioned to BSRIA standards.

Utilising innovative off-site manufacturing techniques, the project received an ‘Excellent’ rating at the PCR (Post Construction Report) stage of the assessment.
