The campus of Truro College in Cornwall was growing and to accommodate this two new buildings were commissioned to provide sports teaching and recreational facilities.

These two buildings were designed with zero carbon emissions objectives in mind, and to take advantage of the low “U” value, thermal mass and air-tightness of the Thermomass® system and helped the college achieve a green energy funding application.

Both building were erected extremely quickly to comply with client requirements. Designed, manufactured and installed by Cornish Concrete Products, using recycled aggregate, the end solution had a very good environmental footprint.

The buildings achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating for environmental and sustainable solutions and have been submitted for RIBA HE, and Civic Trust, Design awards.
