Lime Tree Primary School
This project comprised the creation of a new primary school and nursery in conjunction with a new health care centre. The former Surbiton Hospital site has been used to create a two-form entry school called Lime Tree Primary plus a community health facility. A central facility shared by the two buildings acts as a community hub providing an information desk and access to facilities for the general public during certain hours.
Low carbon features include the development achieving BREEAM Very Good backed by a large PV array and car charging points, while the school incorporates a roof top planting area and an area of green roof, enhancing the teaching experience. The two buildings will also share a combined energy centre to reduce carbon emissions, while the whole site is designed to encourage ‘green travel’ in line with GLA directives.
