Steiner Academy

When refurbishing and extending some existing buildings comprising of an Old Victorian School, a range of late 18th Century barns and a medieval farmhouse to form the Steiner Academy in Hereford, architect John Renshaw required a roof window specification which elegantly combined older historical features with the contemporary need for thermal efficiency.

When refurbishing and extending some existing buildings comprising of an Old Victorian School, a range of late 18th Century barns and a medieval farmhouse to form the Steiner Academy in Hereford, architect John Renshaw required a roof window specification which elegantly combined older historical features with the contemporary need for thermal efficiency.

A planning officer was involved throughout the four year project, from the start of the design development work to completion. The length of the project resulted from previous development control issues relating to the expansion of the school and resulted in more than five separate planning applications being required.

The use of Conservation Rooflights® was presented to the planning authority and the local interest groups as part of the sensitive and high quality approach to enhancing the character of the existing buildings and providing a development which would complement the adjoining Norman church and rural village environment.

 

A total of twenty eight Conservation Rooflights® of various sizes were specified on this project, all manual opening.
