The St Silas Primary School in Blackburn has been nominated in the ‘Best Design’ category at the 2014 Partnerships Awards, the leading event for public / private sector joint ventures.
The £7.5million school was designed by Capita on a small, sloping, urban 2400 sq m site in just eight weeks in the summer of 2010 using BIM as a full multidisciplinary tool.
Working on behalf of Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, in partnership with the local LEP, Capita provided a full range of multidisciplinary services – including architecture, structural engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, landscape architecture, cost consultancy, acoustics, project management, fire engineering, planning and transport planning – for the two form entry, three storey, 420 pupil school.
The winners will be announced on 5th June.
