Ventilation for schools

Following its support for the Education Funding Agency (EFA) in the development of the new Priority School Output Specification, natural-ventilation specialist Breathing Buildings has created a guidance paper to help contractors and engineers comply with the new criteria and cost targets. Breathing Buildings supported the EFA in the assessment of ventilation strategies and the review of energy modelling.

The guidance paper highlights the ventilation requirements of the output specification, along with recommended solutions and data from Breathing Buildings sites such as Linton Village College in Cambridgeshire.

The guidance is available at the link below.
