DOLWYDDELAN SCHOOL : Work is now complete on the new IT Centre at Dolwyddelan School, Conwy. Seven have worked closely with Menter Siabod Ltd to secure grant funding via the Communities Facilities and Activities Programme (CFAP) to provide a state-of-the-art IT facility at the school with the aim of setting it apart from others in the area. The new facility is already proving to be very popular with the local community and will hopefully ensure that the school will continue to thrive in the coming years.
BURY COLLEGE ESTATE : Seven architecture have successfully completed the latest addition to the Bury College Estate, The Piazza. The coffee and snack outlet, with its adjacent landscaping and canopies provides a focus to the Millennium Campus courtyard and offers much needed additional social space for students.
The strong geometry of the building, with a palette of zinc cladding and glazing contrasts with the surrou…nding college buildings and creates a memorable destination and external meeting place on a previously redundant area of site. After much research, the canopies were provided by fabric architecture (www.fabricarchitecture.com) and we think they’ve turned out great.
The scheme forms part of a larger, phased property strategy which has seen a number of recent refurbishments and upgrades across the College estate.
Seven renew are delighted to announce the successful completion of the former dairy redevelopment at Fordhall Farm.
Seven have worked closely with Shropshire Council’s Conservation Officers to sensitively remodel, extend and restore the original building to create new office space for Fordhall Community Land Initiative (FCLI), a farm shop, butchery, tea room and classroom to help educate young pe…ople about food provenance and to provide opportunities for community involvement in a working organic farm.
Throughout the development we have embraced appropriate sustainable technologies such as sheep’s wool to insulate the roof, ‘hemp-crete’ to build and insulate the walls, blown recycled newspaper to insulate the floors, roof mounted photo-voltaics to gather energy from the sun to convert into electricity and an air source heat pump to extract and recycle heat from expelled air.
zero-e’s Annual Charity Bike Ride happened on the 26th June this year. 30 odd (well, not that odd) cyclists turned up on the day. The sun was shining and spirits were high. One broken chain, 4 punctures, 2 dozen muffins, half a pound of flap-jack later and the mission was complete!
