BEST IN CLASS BEMS Cavendish Close Junior School is a large educational facility located


in Chaddesden, Derby. In a recent rebuild, BEMS from Trend Control Systems was used to maximise energy efficiency and create optimum comfort conditions for pupils and staff.


Cavendish Close Junior School has gained an enviable reputation for the quality of its teaching and draws its pupils from a wide catchment area. The school occupies extensive grounds with a playing field, sports field and two playgrounds.


The original building was opened in 1933, with additional classrooms being added in the 1970s. However, in May 2012, the school was informed that it was to be rebuilt as part of the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP), a government initiative designed to address the needs of the schools across the country most in need of urgent repair.

Under the PSBP 260 schools will be rebuilt or have their condition needs met by Education Funding Agency (EFA). Schools in the PSBP are spread across England and have been grouped together in batches, while the grouping takes into consideration geography, commercial viability and condition need. The first new school was opened in May 2014 and the construction work at Cavendish Close Junior School started on the site in March 2015, with staff and pupils moving into a new state-of-the-art building in time for the 2016 spring term.


As a PSBP approved service provider, Bowmer and Kirkland (B&K) was


the main contractor on the project. As such it was committed to the safe management of the project, including making sure that major redevelopments in live environments caused minimum disruption to learning or teaching time. It was also charged with configuring an innovative design solution that maximised the individual opportunities of each and every school site.


Reducing energy consumption is one of the quickest and simplest ways to deliver direct savings and, according to The Carbon Trust, could help the average secondary school
