Case Study: Winford Primary School

For the design of this primary school cost was a primary factor. The desire was to naturally ventilate the building, but given its situation under Bristol Airport’s noisy flight path and a tight budget, the acoustic design was challenging.

A full ventilation strategy was designed by MACH Acoustics in partnership with Stride Treglown. Air would enter the building through openable windows and horizontal, louvred ducts and exit through the roof of a central atrium known as ‘the heart’.

A cross ventilation approach was chosen as it is more effective, reduces the need for large façade vents and hence limits the noise ingress into the building.
