A £37.5m pound school development was recently opened in Ely, Cambridgeshire.  Morgan Sindall were appointed to build Littleport Academy in 2016.  Littleport Academy includes a primary school, a 3 storey secondary school and a SEN School.  It currently accommodates over 650 pupils with room for further growth.

Morgan Sindall and their M&E partner Imtech have successfully achieved their targeted BREEAM “very good” rating for the building, which includes structural insulated panels for thermal efficiency.

Monodraught were specified to provide hybrid and natural ventilation across all three schools and the onsite sport centre including our HTM F andFS systems.  These systems were designed specifically to meet the needs of the Priority School Building Programme and EFA regulations.  

In addition, our well-established Windcatcher solution provides low energy natural ventilation in spaces such as Sports Halls, dining rooms, staff rooms or reception areas. 

We take great pride in the quality of our engineering. Our systems are designed in accordance with our company ethos: innovation, sustainability, reliability and performance.  Systems are tested extensively in house and by third party academic and research organisations to ensure that our solutions deliver the best possible results in buildings were the Windcatchers are installed. 

Following the release of the Facilities Output Specification for the Priority Schools Building Programme, we utilised our extensive knowledge, product testing, and building simulation skills to develop low energy ventilation systems which meet the FOS requirements in a cost efficient manner. 

The HTM F and FS systems are designed to provide natural ventilation and hybrid ventilation (incorporating mixed tempered air for winter periods), with secure night time cooling and boosted levels of ventilation during summer.

Our experienced team were able to install the solution and are on-hand to provide ongoing maintenance and support
