Wintringham Primary Academy shortlisted for RIBA East Award
We are delighted to announce that Wintringham Primary Academy has made the shortlist for the RIBA East 2022 Regional Awards.
The school, which embraces principles of naturalness to provide an inspirational learning environment that prioritises wellbeing and sustainability, exceeds the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge for embodied carbon for new build schools.
The £11 million school is a key building in the emerging district of Wintringham Park, a 2800-home greenfield extension to the Cambridgeshire town of St Neots led by master-developer Urban+Civic.
As part of a team headed by contractor Morgan Sindall, dRMM worked closely with Cambridgeshire County Council and Diamond Learning Partnership Trust to develop the vision. This called for a three form entry primary school for up to 708 children, including a nursery that could be run independently if required.
Wintringham appears on the 22 strong shortlist which has been whittled down from a shortlist of 48 entries to the East of England region. We are looking forward to seeing how the school fares in the upcoming judging process
