Inverclyde Academy opened in January 2009 with an Energy Performance Certificate 'A' rating - a significant achievement for a secondary school building. The Council was committed to producing a landmark campus that would also act as an exemplar to inform the design of subsequent schools.
The design of the Academy makes excellent use of natural daylight and ventilation to provide a high quality learning and teaching facility for the children and wider community. High efficiency condensing gas boilers and heating and water services systems are installed and insulation and air tightness are above current building standards regulations. Sustainably sourced materials, such as Forestry Stewardship ( FSC) sourced timber, were specified where practical and affordable. A 50kW wind turbine will provide 15-20% of the power to the school as well as helping to reduce ongoing energy costs and CO 2 emissions.
