Tiger Way is an education-led mixed-use scheme, which has delivered a high-quality new primary school and nursery co-located with equally high- quality residential apartments. The mixed-use scheme enables a significant reduction in CO2 emissions by utilising an efficient shared CHP heating system and on-site photovoltaics on the roof of the residential towers to avoid overshadowing. The energy strategy on Nightingale Primary School promotes passive design features such as natural ventilation, excellent fabric efficiency and exposed thermal mass, with glazing and openable windows sized to provide good daylight levels and effective overheating control. To ensure daylight throughout, school classrooms have ‘chimney’ vents to roof levels providing natural light to the classrooms.
