Environmental standards of main Hampton College building

Francis Irving made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridgeshire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Cambridgeshire County Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Cambridgeshire County Council,

Hampton College, Eagle Way, Hampton (http://www.hamptoncollege.peterborough.s...) is a school in the area of Cambridgeshire County Council. It opened in 2005 in a new building.

I would like information about any environmental standards that the council required of the building. In particular, I would like to know the expected greenhouse gas emissions during its lifetime.

If there are too many documents for you to send me, please send me those which give an overview, and a list of the titles of the other documents.

If Cambridgeshire County Council were not involved in the planning or construction of the building, please tell me which authorities were involved and in what capacities.

Thank you for taking the time to answer this request.

Yours faithfully,

Francis Irving

I'm told that the building has an energy rating of G, and has various inefficient features such as radiators in the roof. However, I can't find any online documentation of this, or why it was built to such low standards.

Please use the "add annotation" button below if you know of any resources that will help me answer that question, or that describe and standards that it should have been built to.

Hi Francis

Peterborough City Council is the main planning authority - there are a number of planning applications that you could request from them for this school:

(from http://planpa.peterborough.gov.uk/public... )
- 02/00401/OTHFP - Building Control Application Erection of Secondary School - Phase 1
- 09/00642/FUL - Planning Application Provision of 3 mobile units to create 6 additional classrooms
- 09/01074/OTHFP - Building Control Application Erection Of Two New Teaching Blocks, Sports Hall Extension And Library Mezzanine Floor
- 09/01277/OTHFP - Building Control Application Provision Of 3 Double Classroom Mobiles

Some more information on the development of the school is available here on the town's management company's website http://www.ohhampton.co.uk/ - it says that Lyster Grillett & Harding were the architects, and that Galliford were the builders (Site Map > Schools).

You could therefore request the design / build briefs & other relevant documentation, including contracts from the city council under EIR.
