St Mary’s Infant School in Haddenham, Bucks instructed us to design and build an outdoor classroom for pupils to learn about the environment in a complementary setting. Green credentials include photo-voltaic panels to generate electricity, solar water heating system, rain water harvesting and a pump to extract thermal energy from the ground. The building was finished in low-maintenance synthetic cladding. A video of the opening day can be seen here.
