Patrick Parsons applies BIM capabilities for new school

Patrick Parsons, consultant

Multi-disciplinary consulting engineers Patrick Parsons continues to apply BIM level 2 by using Revit MEP capabilities to complete the M&E design of the £11.5 million Ysgol Awel Y Mynydd School in Llandudno Junction, north Wales. This new school is part of Conwy Council’s 21st century schools programme and is designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Very good’. It sees the merging of two existing local primary schools.

Working collaboratively with the design team, AutoCAD Revit was used for the key co-ordination areas, including plant areas and primary distribution routes.

The school includes passive design strategies and low-carbon technology to minimise energy use. Features include roof-mounted natural-ventilation turrets to provide ventilation to classrooms, LED lighting, ventilation heat recovery, high-performance BMS and solar PV panels.
