Project Description

Fairburn View is a new primary school in Castleford, West Yorkshire that has been formed by a merger of Redhill Infants and Redhill Junior Schools. The project involves the demolition of 2,500sqm of existing school accommodation and the building of a new 2,400sqm facility. The new school will provide education for 420 students, with an additional 39 full time nursery places.

DFC designed the fire strategy for the school adopting the principles contained within BS9999 to enable the most efficient design to be realised, whist avoiding the large capital costs associated with the installation of a sprinkler system throughout the school.
