Plashet School for Girls, East London

Project Outline

This state-of-the-art new annexe at East Ham’s highly regarded 1,350 pupil all girls’ school opened in early 2017.

Built to the highest of standards and fully compliant with both Part L of the Building Regulations and the London Plan, our 35.0kWp Solar PV system features 135 solar panels mounted on the large un-shaded flat roof and generates 24,800 kWh per annum.

With the majority of the solar electricity generated used in the building, the school benefits from minimising its grid electricity requirement and saves 12.9 tons of CO2 per annum. Bravo!

The building comprises a new canteen with internal and external dining space, 3 English classrooms, a four court sports hall with two changing areas, 2 drama studios, 2 music studios and a music practise suite as well as new offices and most importantly, from the students’ perspective, 4 new sets of toilets! The new building also affords the school much more external student social space, improved security and disabled access to the entirety of the south building ground & first floor. It is Eco- friendly and even has an allotment plot and a green roof area.
