The Willows is a new school and community building for WCC, which has replaced two existing schools.  The school has been designed for pupils with special needs, including a hydrotherapy pool. A combination of natural and mechanical ventilation has been used for the class spaces to provide a mixed mode solution. A central energy centre adjacent to the building houses a biomass (wood chip) boiler with condensing gas fired boilers as top up.  The scheme was delivered in several phases, the last of which and was completed in 2011.
