St Silas Primary School Nominated at Education Estates Awards

10th November 2014

St. Silas Primary School, Blackburn has been nominated in the ‘BIM Initiative’ category at tomorrow night’s Education Estates Awards.

The new build school, which opened in May 2012, was designed by Capita on behalf of Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council.

A full Capita multidisciplinary team overcame space challenges to design a new school on a small, sloping, urban 2400 sq m site comprising four linked blocks wrapping around a play courtyard which floods the school with natural daylight; and a single storey block with a rooftop play deck of rubber ‘meerkat’ mounds linked to the ground with a tube slide.

The project was designed in just eight weeks using BIM.
