Enquire about this Case Study

There has been a school in Chaddesley Corbett since the Middle Ages.
Chaddesley Corbett Endowed First School occupied the site next to St. Cassian’s
Parish Church, in the centre of Chaddesley Corbett village.
In 2004 Worcestershire County Council decided to change the Wyre Forest schools
from 3 tier to 2 tier.
This site could not accommodate the new primary school, due to its size and site
constraints. 9 potential sites for the new school were identified and a points score
system was used to determine a preferred site.
After extensive public consultation, a new site was selected, just outside the village.
Chaddesley Corbett Endowed Primary School serves the community between
Kidderminster and Bromsgrove.
It is located within an agricultural landscape sloping gently to the south west and
contained within a hedge boundary on three sides.

Having tried other Clay block systems we recognize that Porotherm is a first class product and the best on the UK market. Boughton Butler specify Porotherm Clay blocks for more and more projects as they achieve outstanding thermal performance combined with crucial thermal mass. On site the project benefits from the fast construction, becoming watertight quickly and facilitating follow-on-trades. All this is Backed up with the great technical support, fast response times, operative training and punctual delivery.
