Projects / Exeter House SEN School

Design & Build for New Building and Refurbishment of Existing adjoining part of Exeter House SEN School, Salisbury.

Watertite Heating Ltd were selected by Morgan Sindall plc during the construction of a completely new building, together with a refurbishment of the existing adjoining building on the site.

The school educates children with severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties, and with this in mind, the design of certain services had to accommodate this.

The building has enhanced and extended the external areas, providing dedicated calm areas for pupils, stimulating and creative nursery space, a private area for Post 16 pupils, as well as a new focal courtyard for the whole school. Form and materials integrate the new building with the existing whilst creating enjoyable, colourful internal and external spaces. The top lit central ‘arcade’ with its balconies overlooking the lower ground floor creates drama with its displays of pupils’ work, and provides an important focal space for the new school.

We carried out the supply and install of the complete mechanical services package, inclusive of plant room, commercial plumbing and heating distribution network CHP unit, AHU ventilation systems, BMS controls, UFH, Rain water harvesting system, above ground drainage Sanitaryware and air conditioning systems.
