This publication is part of a series of work sponsored by the Scottish Executive to encourage the design and construction of sustainable schools in Scotland. It follows on from previous guidance on School Design (2003) and Sustainability (2004), published in support of the joint Scottish Executive and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) school estate strategy Building our Future: Scotland’s School Estate.
In this context the two volumes entitled, Design and Construction of Sustainable Schools look at some examples of recent sustainable school buildings in Norway and Germany, with a view to informing the development of our school estate in Scotland. The publication will be of interest to everyone involved in school design. The first book looks at the individual buildings and their design and this, the second volume looks more widely at both specific and generic issues that arose from the whole experience.
