Sure Start Children’s Centre Nursery Building for Buckland Primary School.
This expansive sustainable nursery building for Buckland Primary School was constructed to enable childcare provision.

- Thermowood cladding provides an attractive finish
- Low maintenance highly insulated composite walls and roof to reduce heat loss from the building
- Hard wearing EPDM synthetic rubber roof membrane
