Work starts on Passivhaus Bristol school projects

Posted on by in News

Main contractor BAM has started work on a new project to deliver a primary and secondary school in Lyde Green near Bristol. The company said the new school buildings will be built to Passivhaus standards making them highly energy efficient and net zero carbon.

BAM will construct the new 420-place primary school, alongside a new, 900-place, 11-16 secondary school.

As well as modern new learning facilities, the school buildings have been designed to benefit the wider community, with a core area of purpose-built, shared-use sports facilities.

The construction appointment was made by South Gloucestershire Council, via the Southern Construction Framework (SCF).

BAM Regional Director Tim Chell, said: “As we begin construction, we’re looking forward to delivering two highly sustainable schools.

“I am delighted that we are now able to see work getting underway and that funding has been secured to deliver these brand-new schools for the local community.”

Both schools will be completed and ready to welcome new students, to begin learning onsite, in September 2026.
