Scott Brownrigg wins Green Apple Award for St Bartholomews School, Newbury


Scott Brownrigg has won the Architectural category in the Green Apple Awards 2011 for their project St Bartholomew’s School, Newbury. 

The awards, organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-profit environment group, were established in 1994 with the aim of recognising and promoting environmental best practice among companies, councils, communities and countries. 

Judges for the awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Waste Management, BRE and other independent bodies.

Scott Brownrigg’s winning project, St Bartholomew’s School, Newbury, which was officially opened by the Countess of Wessex last month incorporates a tapered green roof which, when combined, comprises one of the country’s largest green roofs.  The school also incorporates a biomass boiler that uses recycled wood chips to provide a low carbon source of energy and mixed mode ventilation which will deliver an energy saving of at least 40% over Part L 2006. 

The project will feature in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice. The project will also be considered to represent the UK in the European Business Awards for the Environment.

The award will be presented to Scott Brownrigg at the presentation ceremony, taking place at the University of Westminster on 20 June 2011.
