Footprint Architects have taken into consideration the Georgian architecture of the Melksham area, the importance of light and connections to nature and a communal space for student learning.

Sustainability is also a key ethos of Footprint Architects leading to the use of high levels of insulation, natural ventilation and natural daylighting and locally sourced materials throughout the building.

The exclusive brick used on this project was the Kingston Weathered Gault. This brick has been designed to reflect a heritage-reclaimed style of brick. The Kingston Weathered Gault is a lovely blend of buff and yellow bricks with smoke-grey hues and white highlights, this popular brick is only available from Crest Building Products.
