Odyzee School

Kategorie: School
Total construction time: December 2010 – April 2011

A school complex in the Netherlands which won the PassiefBouwen Award 2011.

Challenges

The Odyzee School was the first school building in the Netherlands to be built to Passive House Standards.

Innovation

A design team developed and planned the entire project from start to finish. g&m projects joined the team on day one and was able to bring its expertise into the planning process right away.

Solution

The structure was built from wood and concrete elements in a hybrid approach. As a result, the advantages of building in concrete, which is very common in Holland, could be combined with the benefits of using wood structures, which resulted in the erection of a highly cost-effective complex.

Result

A modern school complex where teachers and students enjoy a sense of wellbeing. The objective of maximum climate protection is achieved simultaneously. This project documents once again that minimising the impact on the climate also boosts the comfort of a building's occupants.

Transfer

Design team planning is a highly effective tool that utilises the expertise of everyone involved as early in the project as possible. This is a model that offers plenty of scope for expansion.
