Due to the existing footprint and location of Block A, the entry area acts as a wind tunnel with rain, debris and insects constantly being deposited and blowing into the classrooms. This building houses the youngest students and the parents congregate during drop off/ pick up at the entry of the building at either end of the day. One of the main Scope of Works for this Project is to provide a new enclosed airlock to Block A to address the existing ‘wind tunnel’ effect to these classroom entries.
The use of Acoustic Panels adds aesthetics to the space with audio properties. These contoured surface panels reduce noise reverberation by diffusing sound waves, providing an environment with an enhanced performance. The further use of Skylights shall introduce sufficient natural light into the space.
