Sharrow Primary School – Sheffield

Sharrow school is a new 3 storey junior and infant school covering approximately 2700m2 in the south of Sheffield.  To deliver a truly groundbreaking green school, a ground source system incorporating five 45kw heat pumps was chosen to provide an alternative to standard heating systems. Due to the size of the building and the spaceavailable for the ground collector,  the project involved drilling 21 boreholes between 70m and 90m deep to source heat from the adjacent park.  The school has also incorporated a green roof, rainwater harvesting system and passivent system to minimise the need for mechanical ventilation
