PROJECT DETAILS


Project: Portsmouth UTC Location: London Road, Portsmouth Construction cost: £10.4m Client: Portsmouth City Council Architect: Stride Treglown Contractor: BAM Construct Structural engineer: Ridge Client’s quantity surveyor: Mott MacDonald


Cladding & roof contractor: Kovara Windows contractor: Dudleys Brickwork contractor: GP Masonry Structural steelwork: H Young Secondary steel frame contractor: Hadleys


One key aim of the design was to provide a building that is cheap to run. To that end, an array of more than 100 PV panels on one section of the hot melt roof will provide around 15,000 kWh of electricity per annum. On the ground floor of the atrium there will also be underfloor heating.


“It will be super-efficient in terms of insu- lation and will be very economical in terms of fuel,” says Newman.


The biggest issue created for the construction team by Stride Treglown’s distinctive triangular design was in the brickwork, and the need for different angles on the joins.


Specialist contractor GP Masonry took away piles of the bricks supplied by Wienerberger to cut and cement pairs to create angles for the corners of the lower section of the exterior wall. “The key has been to have specified

materials that are flexible enough,” says Newman, who adds: “In achieving the building’s form, it’s all about using tried and tested components getting the inter- faces right.”


Getting those interfaces right to ensure that the building was airtight was also essential with the, Vapour Control Line between the external and internal facade particularly vital. Crookes adds: “What does make a differ- ence is whether it’s sealed or not and where you can have problems is the interface between contractors.” Internally, those problems have been overcome through the creation of work zones. Specialist contractors are expected to have completed work in one zone before moving to another.


The interior design specifies a plaster- board system from BG and this is being erected as part of a fit-out programme, which began in January 2017 and will provide a gross internal area of 5,000 m2


.


The project is due for completion on 24 July 2017 and the first intake of students will arrive after the summer, as a revolution in schooling is evident inside and out at Portsmouth’s new UTC.
