St Jerome’s is a primary school located in Formby, near Liverpool. It sets an example of sustainability with numerous green measures implemented throughout. The school was built with sustainability in mind, the materials used in the construction of the school were either recycled or will be capable of reuse at the end of the school’s life.
Other systems include highly efficient condensing boilers serve the underfloor heating throughout the school; a rainwater collection and re-use system; solar panels that heat the water and day-to-day power requirements; and a high level of insulation to minimise energy use.
To further improve the school’s performance and energy efficiency, the maintenance programme, secured by Kimpton for a further 3 years, is required to reduce energy consumption.
The maintenance programme incorporates the boilers and associated equipment, solar hot water system, rainwater collection and reuse system, air conditioning and electrical systems.
Kimpton will work to maintain the equipment regularly which will ensure it remains in good condition and operating at maximum efficiency, equating to lower emissions and energy usage for the school.
