Oasis Academy is a 2-storey independent primary school for 420 pupils, with a multi-use games area located on the roof. It forms part of the redevelopment of a former 1930’s hospital site which also provided a 24-unit apartment block.
Tullys provided Civil and Structural Engineering services in a collaborative BIM environment, utilising Revit to design a three-storey framed school building; with play area on the roof, and a five-storey framed apartment block with basement parking. Through clever use of SuDS devices, including balancing ponds and attenuation, the team halved the surface water drainage connections and avoided complex land ownership issues. Further value engineering removed pumping requirements for both foul and surface water systems, also reducing long term maintenance issues.
