Gergask Primary School, Scottish Highlands
Client: Highland Council
Contractor: Wernick Buildings, Dimplex
Type of works: Wernick built a Rapidplan 3000 modular classroom.
Gergask Primary School in the Scottish Highlands is one of the many schools to have had its accommodation extended with a Rapidplan 3000 modular classroom, courtesy of Wernick Buildings.
The Highland Council, responsible for the school, asked Wernick to make the design as energy efficient as possible.
First, Wernick made sure that the building was well insulated and air-tight, to eliminate heat loss. Then, working with Dimplex, a decision was made that an under floor heating system should be powered by an air source pump, which would source heat from the air.
