Sheppard Robson submits Waingels College plans

  • Comment
Sheppard Robson has submitted a planning application for the £29 million Waingels College in Woodley, Wokingham.

The scheme will incorporate a cross-laminated timber structural system that, according to the practice, will reduce its carbon emissions by 60 per cent.

Sheppard Robson’s proposal divides the school into three pastoral bases that are expressed as individual learning communities, conceived as a ‘school within a school’.

Sheppard Robson says the ‘community’ becomes a village of teaching and learning spaces; the central Open Heart space as a village green; and a fourth building houses the large shared assembly and dining hall spaces.

The new buildings will provide space for 1,500 pupils and 172 teaching staff.

Subject to planning consent, the two-phase construction programme for the college is expected to start next year and will be completed in October 2011.
